Hispanic Culture - a Cultural Diversity Celebration!

Hispanic Culture - a Cultural Diversity Celebration!

Hispanic culture, a cultural diversity celebration!

A brief introduction to the Hispanic culture with Ms. Parpala.

Spanish speaking countries, the language, idioms, legends, arts, music, cuisine, history, social & family values of the Hispanic people!


We’ve had a great time with our photo booth, we learned how to do “Piñatas” and dance “Salsa”. We also made the most delicious “Guacamole” while listening to Hispanic songs and music like the famous guitarist Paco de Lucía and Shakira. Watching the “Flamenco” dance was so fascinating and of course… We’ve had a blast breaking the “Piñatas”!

Please check out our website's photo gallery for more pictures from our event!
