Narranga school?s taste has grown up
IT was some 14 years ago when Narranga Primary School held it's first Multicultural Day.
As something special for the students a Coffs Harbour Japanese man went to the school to cook a traditional Japanese feast for everyone to share.
Unfortunately much of the food went to waste with the majority of students turning their noses up at the sight of that 'seaweed stuff'.
Today at Narranga sushi is sold in the school canteen, and according to principal Graham Doust, is very popular.
"It is amazing how much has changed. Just over 10 years ago we couldn't give it away and now we are selling Japanese meals right in our canteen," he said.
After missing a few years, Narranga Primary School again celebrated Multicultural Day last week, with all students taking part in the colourful day.
Each class had chosen a country to study and posters of their classwork were proudly on display, recognising the different nationalities of the school and community.
