By CATHERINE HEALY Residents living around Cor- ban Estate Arts Centre may have wondered what all the noise was about this week as busloads of children arrived for the West Auckland Pri- mary Schools Multicultural Festival. Henderson Primary School Principal Keith Tetzlaff has organised the multicultural song and dance festival for the past four years. It gives the children the opportunity to perform on stage in front of an audience, which they love,'' Mr Tetzlaff says. West Auckland is made up of lots of different cultures and so the festival allows children to learn about these cultures, the music, and the dance. The children have the opportunity to express their cultural identity, and it also lets them appreciate the cultures of the other children they go to school with.'' Mr Tetzlaff says Hender- son Primary has an Indian dance group which includes children of Indian, Maori and Pacific Island decent. The festival is part of the Pacifica Living Arts Festival. This year 36 west Auck- land primary schools took part, giving some 3500 chil- dren the chance to perform. Mr Tetzlaff says this year's festival was funded by Waita- kere City Council, The Trusts and ASB and was also supported by many willing volunteers.
