The Waimakariri Migrants and Newcomers Group held a successful
Cultural Diversity Event last Sunday in Kaiapoi. Around 120 people attended from a range of
countries and across all age groups. The
event was part of wider programme supported by the Waimakariri District Council
Community Development Team.
Migrants and newcomers represented countries from all round
the globe including Australia, Bahrain, Fiji, Hong Kong, Hungary, Peru, The
Philippines, Portugal, South Africa, Tonga, United Kingdom, United Arab
Emirates and Zambia.
In addition, people came from Christchurch and across the
district including Ashley, Balcairn, Christchurch, Kaiapoi, Oxford, Pegasus, Pines
Beach, Rangiora and Tuahiwi.
Attendees were asked a number of questions about their
experience as a migrant or newcomer. Feedback
received was wide and varied with 78% of those surveyed saying that they felt
welcomed and supported in New Zealand.
When asked what more could be done to help them those surveyed indicated
that help with finding employment, getting more involved in community life and
more cultural diversity events would be great.
Attendees were also asked if the cultural diversity event
could be improved and the response was overwhelmingly positive with people
asking for more events and to invite more people to come along. Denise
Wiggins, Community Development Facilitator says “This was an amazing event all
about embracing diversity in our community.
It was a great to see old and young enjoying each other’s company and
taking the time to connect with each other.”
