Our curriculum on culture assists children in understanding the differences in various types of cultures. The goal of this curriculum is to teach cultural awareness and in doing so promote knowledge of self as well as tolerance of others.
This year we hosted our first Countries & Cultures Day at St. Thomas. We invited our friends from Orange Presbyterian Weekday School and the junior kindergartners from Grymes Memorial School to join us on our travels. There were representatives from Canada, Norway, Denmark, Cambodia, Germany, China, France, and India. The students “traveled” to all of the countries, having their passports stamped as they made their way around the world.
