Cross Cultural Training with Tatachilla Lutheran College and Pinnacle College

It was wonderful hosting a Cross-Cultural training session for the students of Tatachilla Lutheran College at Marion Mosque! MWASA’s Cross-Cultural Educator, Sr. Flora Chanisheff, had discussed the topic of Islam and Muslims, and hosted a Q&A session regarding common misconceptions. We even had some students from Pinnacle College to come in and sit with the students of Tatachilla. They aided Sr Flora with answering questions from the students of Tatachilla.

Year 12 Tatachilla Lutheran and Pinnacle College students having a chat.

It was incredible to see students from both schools interact and seeing them gradually break down social barriers and chat comfortably was very heart-warming, having shared lunch afterwards was full of lively conversation! It was an incredibly eye-opening experience for both Tatachilla and Pinnacle students alike and we can’t wait to host another session.

Shared lunch among students catered by Marion Mosque.

Big thank you to Nurhayati, Filzah, and Zuhair from the Islamic Society of South Australia for assisting in organizing and hosting the session. Thank you also to the year 12 students from Tatachilla College and Pinnacle College for participating!
