A Night in Japan and South Africa: Grade 5 and 6 Cultural Evening

Med High Grade 5 and 6 students captivated the audience with their cultural presentations, offering a journey through Japan and South Africa. The performances were both educational and entertaining, showcasing the students’ dedication and creativity!



Grade 5: Japan

Grade 5 students explored the captivating beauty and cultural heritage of Japan. They took the audience on an enchanting expedition through Japan’s rich tapestry, from its ancient customs to its cutting-edge technology. Our exploring backpackers, journalists, and actors travelled far and wide, showcasing the beauty, diversity, and allure of this enchanting land. The show consisted of two parts: a nonfiction presentation that provided insightful information about Japan’s history and culture, and a traditional Japanese tale that brought the country’s folklore to life.



Grade 6: South Africa

Grade 6 students presented South Africa, the southernmost country in Africa, with a coastline that stretches along the South Atlantic and Indian Oceans. They shared fascinating facts about South Africa, focusing particularly on paying tribute to Nelson Mandela, the country’s first black president and a key figure in the fight against apartheid. The performance included an acappella rendition of a famous South African song, a rhythmic gumboot dance, and culminated in a flash mob dance where the entire audience was invited to join in celebrating the same hit song.



The cultural show was a resounding success, with Grade 5 and 6 students demonstrating their hard work and passion for learning. Their vibrant performances and insightful presentations made for an unforgettable evening, celebrating the diversity and richness of our world.

We would like to extend our appreciations to all the parents and teachers involved in making this evening a success!
