The organizer of these gatherings has been Parents Association within the Educational System Kreativno pero . The gathering was organised with the aim of bringing Australian culture and tradition closer to our pupils, parents and friends of the school, accompanied with pleasant time spent with the traditional dishes.
The programme was openned by our youngest – children from the Kreativno Pero who danced with the melodies of Australian music and the ancient music of Aborigines tribes, followed by a musical preformance of the 8th grade pupil Milica Kovacevic on the flute and music teacher Teodora Tapavicki on the piano. A young opera trio – Youkali made up of Katarina Radovanovic, soprano, Stevan Karanac, tenor and Dijana Djoric, the piano, presented Sidney Opera. Kreativno Pero choir lifted the mood, and 3rd grade pupil Aleksej Stevanovic, whose parents had a key role in this year’s event, presented the natural beauties, sights and culture of Australia.
The gathering continued with the specialties of Serbian and Australian cuisines and music characteristic for the far away Australia. During the dinner, attendees could buy lottery tickets , and the prizes were drawn at about 8 pm, to the greatest joy of the youngest. The prizes were suvenires such as handmade boomerangs, traditional instrument didgeridoo, and plush replicas of Australian animals.
