IN celebration of the 6th Annual International Week Festival, the University of Wollongong will showcase Illawarra’s diverse and global flavours.
From tomorrow (Tuesday), iWeek aims to acknowledge and pay tribute to the many and various cultures present in the Wollongong community.
Students and families are invited to be involved in a variety of festivities including an international food safari, global games, international trivia and performances showcasing the talents and customs of UOW students and the local community.
Event Co-ordinator, Kym Arntzen, said International Week would be an exciting, dynamic event that draws the campus and community together.
“UOW has an internationally diverse staff, and many incoming, outgoing and offshore international students, all working together in a supportive and lively environment characterised by diversity and cultural sensitivity.
“International Week is about celebrating this diversity,” she said.
Prizes available throughout the week include a $500 STA travel voucher, a tandem voucher from Skydive the Beach, two Sydney Harbour Bridge walks courtesy of Bridge Climb Sydney and other adventures thanks to Ultimate Paintball.
The 2012 International Week will take place at the University of Wollongong from September 4-6 from 12.30pm daily.
