Review of 2015 Cultural Festival
Edgewater College’s annual cultural evening overflowed the school’s hall with audiences of up to 450 people. Cultural co-ordinator Tu Edwards thought the event would be enhanced if as many members of the community could attend as possible.
The school performances combine now with a picnic in the park - on the sports fields.
The school’s renowned kapa haka group, which competes in division one on the Maori stage at ASB Polyfest, begins the performance each year, along with a dozen other acts.
“It’s a celebration of the school’s different cultures as one community,” says Mr Edwards."It's a good opportunity to have a meal and watch the singing and dancing.”
In 2015, the event begins at 4pm on Friday 20 March, with performances from 5 - 7.30pm.
There are stalls offering food representing the many cultures.
“To be true to the concept of a cultural festival, we need to have the food side by side with the performing,” says Mr Edwards.
"Food is a big part of a lot of our cultures.”
