International Week ready to swing into action

The University of Wollongong is all set to celebrate its multicultural diversity during International Week which runs from August 24-28.

All UOW staff and staff are being encouraged to participate in the myriad celebrations planned for the week.

A program of planned activities can be found at the following website: www.unicentre.uow.edu.au/internationalweek

A sample of activities for the week includes:

On Monday evening, there will be traditional music and dance performances in the University Hall Foyer and an International games evening in the UniBar (e.g. Mah-jongg).

On Tuesday, it is ‘Cultural Dress Day’ at UOW with students and staff asked to wear their traditional cultural clothes to the campus. There will be free live entertainment on the Duck Pond Lawn and all student service groups are invited to set up a stall. Best photo opportunity time for this is 12.30pm on Tuesday.

On Wednesday, all clubs and societies, staff and other students will participate in UOW’s Giant International Bake Sale where traditional sweets and baked goods will be sold on the Duck pond lawn during lunch time. This will be a great fundraising opportunity for favourite charities or special events.

On Thursday, the annual Living @ UOW Global Highway returns. Participants will visit each “country” across campus with their passport and there are great prizes to be won.

For more information contact the Manager of the Centre for Student Engagement at UniCentre, Melissa Zaccagnini on (02) 4221 8024 or 0437 140 608 (m); and for the Global Highway event media can also call Edwina Ellicott on 0437 046 456 (m).
