FLAVOURS of many palates will be celebrated at Oxley High tonight.
The school’s annual International Night will celebrate cuisine from many countries including Turkey, Japan, Ireland, Mexico, Italy and Australia.
From 6pm, there will be more than 20 countries represented, each with its own stand and the Student Representative Council will be on the job selling drinks from open to close.
Parents and teachers are getting in the spirit and will dress up for the night, the 31st International Night, which is the main fundraiser for the school, with the money going directly back to the students.
As well as celebrating cultural differences through food, there will be entertainment with performers, singers and musicians.
“You’ll see students from Year 7 to 12 performing, which shows the wealth of talent we have at the school,” teacher Melanie Hodges said.
“We also have a lot of former students who come back especially for International Night.”
P&C member Dea Mackintosh said it was a great way to showcase the school and bring the community to Oxley High School.
The Tamworth community has backed the event, too, donating items for the raffle.
One of the special items is a “priceless” dinner for two with member for Tamworth Kevin Anderson. There will be a separate raffle for a fluffy white bear donated by Aunty Jax.
