Parents School NewsCelebrating Diversity and Unity on Global Focus Day
Our K-Grade 12 community enjoyed a beautiful celebration of diversity and unity at our recent Global Focus Day.
On April 27, Senior Years students honoured the many different languages, cultures, and nations that God has brought to LCS. Students were invited to showcase their country of origin with a display of artifacts and items that highlighted their heritage. At the heart of this special day was a desire to celebrate the many nations where God originally placed our students and to acknowledge that we are all united under Him.
The Main School Hallway was buzzing with students and staff enjoying the displays and answering questions about each others’ cultures. Senior Years students talked about their heritage with pride and enthusiasm, answering questions from our younger students and staff members as they toured the hallway.
The student body at LCS can be likened to a gathering of the nations and this special day gave us an opportunity to celebrate our diversity and ultimately, our unity in Christ.
Revelation 7:9 says: “After this I looked, and there before me was a great multitude that no one could count, from every nation, tribe, people and language, standing before the throne and before the Lamb. They were wearing white robes and were holding palm branches in their hands. And they cried out in a loud voice:
“Salvation belongs to our God, who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb.”
At Chapel on Friday, our Global Focus initiative wrapped up with a number of SY students reciting Revelation 7:9 in their first language. Enjoy that video here.
Thank you to Mrs. Evelyn Davison and the EAL team for bringing this event to our community.
