he sound of a distant bass can be heard from the Olive Court, pounding away as groups of students pass by swiftly, making their way to the rally court where MVHS holds its annual Culture Night. Songs in Korean, Spanish, Japanese, French and Chinese blast into the evening air and people crowd around tables where different clubs sell a variety of food including pan dulce, curry with rice and samosas. As the sun begins to shift in the sky, each club takes turns performing, some dancing and others singing along to karaoke. Attendance to the event was free, and $10 vouchers for food from each of the clubs’ tables were sold at the front, with all proceeds going to Free The Children.
The scene can be described best as a combination and enhancement of different cultures found on school grounds. Hover over the photos and watch the videos below to see the performances and activities from Culture Night.
