On Thursday, May 10th, 2012 the atrium at Saint Michael was transformed into a colourful and delicious celebration of diversity. Students and staff gathered to taste a wide variety of desserts from around the globe prepared by the students and their families. The event was hosted by the English as a Second Language classes in conjunction with The Food Festival Committee. This year’s festival featured a total of 23 countries including: Pakistan, Canada, China, Colombia, France, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Korea, and many others. Tables representing each participating country displayed flags, maps, national flowers, cultural decorations and authentic desserts. Some of the sweets included: crepes, baklava, rice pudding, bubble tea, samosas and perogies. While taking their taste buds on a world tour, students were entertained by a variety of energetic cultural performances such as: Celtic, Highland, Colombian and Kurdish dances and the rhythm and beat of the Saint Michael Drum Circle. The afternoon highlighted the vast diversity of the Saint Michael student body and gave students an opportunity to share their heritage with peers.
