Otago Polytechnic

We held a Celebration of Diversity on campus today to raise money for victims of the Christchurch terror attacks.

We have students and staff from dozens of different nationalities at our Auckland International Campus.

Many brought food from their cultures to sell at today’s celebration. The event also included a Muslim prayer, performances of John Lennon’s Imagine on guitar and Tutira Mai on ukulele, and Indian dancing.

We also sold green bracelets which people could wear to show their solidarity with the Muslim community.

All money raised at the event will go toward the family of four-year-old girl, Alen Alsati, and her father, Waseem, who have been in hospital in Auckland following the attacks. A representative from their family attended today’s celebration.
