Dear families and friends of Turkey and Northern Syria,

We have all been deeply saddened to hear of the devastating earthquakes in Turkey and Northern Syria this week.   It is a tragic event that has affected many of our VSL community across Melbourne and Victoria. We know that some of our families will have loved ones affected by the earthquake and extend our comfort and best wishes to you during this difficult time.

Should any of your children need support when they are in classes over coming weeks, please do not hesitate to let your centre supervisor know so that we can make arrangements to assist.

Spanish Cultural Day
29 October, 2022

On the 29th Of October, the Spanish faculty of Box Hill had a cultural day.

Students created a day of the dead altar by decorating a table with their paper cutting artwork. Students enjoyed learning about the Day of the Dead and took part in trivia and other activities.

Day of the Dead, or Día de los Muertos, is a traditional Mexican holiday celebrated on November 2nd. On this day, it is believed that the souls of the dead return to visit their living family members. Many people celebrate this day by visiting the graves of loved ones and setting up altars with their favourite foods, drink, and photos. 

 La Catrina is one of the most recognizable figures of Day of the Dead. A towering female skeleton with vibrant make up and a flamboyant feathery hat. 

On the day of the dead, people dress as a “Catrina” in traditional clothing and make up. 

 Students also took part in a salsa class, which was taught by two special guests.

Students from all 3 Spanish groups participated, and learnt steps to the music, salsa dancing, and rhythm.

It was a fantastic day for everyone.
