On Monday, VUES had some visitors for Multicultural May. Three students from Middlebury College volunteered their time to speak about different countries. Jeff talked about Hong Kong. We learned many facts including Hong Kong has more than 7 million people! Maria talked about Australia. Australia has many interesting animals and customs. Sophia talked about Spain. We learned about the different food that people enjoy in Spain. At the end of the visit, we sang songs and ate Australian cookies.
