On Tuesday (26 September) Ilam School are holding their school Cultural Day and as part of this will hold a parade which finishes with a walk out the front gates of the school on Ilam Rd, a short walk along Kirkwood Ave and come in through the adjoining driveway between the school and Kirkwood Campus.
For this parade the children are strongly encouraged to dress up in clothing that reflects their heritage. This year they have 62 ethnicities taking part.
This year participants will return through the far University driveway (next to 24 Kirkwood Ave) and walk back through Kirkwood Campus along the main access walkway. This allows Kirkwood Intermediate to fully support us and it enables the school to share with the greater Ilam community and University of Canterbury where we have strong links. This walk is scheduled to commence at 10:00 a.m. and participants expect to be on campus at approximately 10:10 for about 10 minutes.
