Duffield Elementary School recently hosted its second annual “Heritage Museum Day,” inviting students’ family members and Connetquot High School students to the school in an effort to promote a widespread cultural understanding and respect for the many customs celebrated throughout the world. 

Throughout the halls of the school, each classroom featured a learning environment where Connetquot High School volunteers were able to shed light onto the different customs of the countries represented and engaged the younger students in a variety of activities. Such presentations included activity stations where students could create Dominican carnival masks, a photo booth which was designed to mimic the culture and clothing of India, and a demonstration of an authentic Native American Pow Wow.

Additionally, the school’s gymnasium was transformed into a cultural museum, where multiple displays were set up with factual information about countries around the world, including but not limited to Colombia, Poland, France and India.
