Do you have a family tradition or uniquely Bermudian skill that you can share with the students at Saltus?
This year marks the 40th anniversary of Bermuda Day
. The theme of this year’s Bermuda Heritage Month is Bermudian Excellence. As a result, we have asked our some of the Middle School students at Saltus to create a video that answers the question: How are Bermuda’s traditional cultures relevant to teenagers today?
We are asking for volunteers from the community to assist us with our project. Do you have a family fishcake or loquat jam recipe you could teach the children? Do you make flower arrangements with Easter lilies or other indigenous flowers? Do you have any felled cedar lying around that you could donate? Are you a fan of Bermuda’s fitted dinghies or the Bermuda Rig that you could share your expertise? Is there a hidden Gombey costume in your cupboard? Do you have any links with the Pequot nation from St David’s?
We will be hosting two expert afternoons at Saltus - 17th and 31st May
- where students from years 8 and 9 will be listening to guest speakers about Bermudian culture. Students will then use the knowledge gained from these sessions to complete their projects.
If you can assist us in anyway please get in touch with Miss Habib email@example.com
and Mr. Nannini firstname.lastname@example.org
