Multicultural Day at QCHS

On Monday, November 6, Quakertown Community High School held a Multicultural Day to celebrate students of all heritages and backgrounds.  This event supports the district's No Place for Hate initiative.

The Social Justice Club, led by World Language Teacher Bethany Fuller, hosted this day which represented
 more than 20 nationalities. This event was held in the gymnasium and allowed attendees to browse tables with facts, maps, food and drinks, and artifacts/dress that represented different cultures. Students participated in performing dances and playing games as well. All students were welcomed, and some even brought family members to share in the celebration and education.

Teacher Sean Burke shared that he saw a whole new side to students that he had never seen in class.

Students and faculty had their photos taken with “No Place for Hate” picture frames throughout the day.

"It was wonderful to see the pride students showed in their cultures," said Kim Finnerty, house principal for grades 10-12, "It was a great day, and we hope to improve and expand this annual event in the years to come."  The school community has instituted the event to happen annually, as a consistent reminder that Quakertown has no place for hate.
