It was cultural market day at the Victor Harbor High School

The Victor Harbor High School won a grant to internationalise the school.

It was $40,000 from the Asia Education Foundation over a two year period.

So on September 9, the school ran a Global Market Day where students promoted cultures from different countries.

The school's mission is to make global citizens of the school community by providing opportunities for staff and students to develop a greater knowledge of intercultural understanding through learning about diversity of cultures, customs, beliefs and values.

Indonesian teacher at the Victor Harbor High School Emma Brown said one of the ways of doing this was to hold a global market which comprised of indigenous crafts, food and displays.

"Each class had a country and produced food or crafts for the event. It is a great educational tool for all classes at the school," Emma said.

"As the students chose a country to represent, they embraced the different backgrounds and cultures. They are better aware of the diversity of each country. The whole school embraced the program and developed greater learning and connections."
