On the third day of this year’s Arts Week, the South Asian Culture Club hosted the second annual South Asian Culture Day. Grade 12 students Monie Tutt and Aanikh Kler, the boys behind the famed South Asian Culture Club, spearheaded this Arts Week event.

The event was a true festival of South Asian culture, with elements of art, dance, and food. In front of the fireplace in the lower Great Hall, a troupe of colourfully dressed Bhangra dancers displayed their skills to onlookers. They also taught a Bhangra dance class to students during the second half of the lunch hour.

The highlight of this event for many was the Indian Buffet served in the lower Great Hall. Students lined up throughout the Hall to feast on bountiful plates of butter chicken, paneer, rice, naan bread, and more! For just $10, students got to have some tasty Indian home cooking for lunch.
