Logan Park High School enrolment dean Kristan Mouat said 80 pupils from more than 30 cultural and ethnic backgrounds introduced themselves to the school in their national costumes during the annual assembly.

The event included singing and dancing, and focused on unity within diversity, and encouraged tolerance and respect within their global village.

The pupils joined Maori and Pakeha pupils to celebrate their differences and acknowledge their unity.
