School to host first cultural fest

IN a first for the school, Campsie Public School Year 6 Korean bilingual class is collaborating with the Sydney Opera House Creative Learning in Leadership program to create a night to remember.

Producing their very own film festival, the students will host a wonderful family night of culture, fun and activities at the school on September 19 from 6pm.
“There’ll be homegrown short films, fun games with prizes, food and a photo booth, lucky door gifts, famous celebrities and a glamorous Red Carpet experience,” Opera House artist and mentor Curly Fries said.
“The night will finish off with a family film for all to enjoy and provided by the Korean Cultural Society.
“Special guests include Lego Man, Scarlet Witch, Adelaide Kennedy and Miles Pike.”
Curly, who works with the students every Thursday during school term, says the students are creating the whole event including content, entertainment and logistics, all inspired by Shaun Tan’s The Red Tree which deals with isolation and self power in an ever changing world.
“With entry free to the Campsie Public school community, it is a very interesting project that’s authentically creatively driven by the students,” he said.
