On Saturday, 20 May, 2017, an Annual Dinner ceremony was held in Sydney, organized by the NSW Federation of Community Language Schools.

Representatives of Serbian schools with The Hon. Raymond Williams, Minister for Multiculturalism of NSW

This event is held annually as a tradition to support the Australian policy of nurturing multiculturalism and to encourage the representatives of all ethnic communities in NSW to contribute, support and attract as many students as possible to attend evening classes in their native languages, as well as to nurture and preserve their Cultural heritage and identity.

The ceremony was attended by the Prime Minister of NSW, the Hon. Gladys Berejiklian, as well as the Hon. Raymond Williams, Minister for Multiculturalism, and the Hon.

At the beginning of the ceremony the Australian anthem was sung by a well-known young artist of Serbian background, Violeta Bozanic, finalist of the “Australia’s Got Talent 2016” show. During the evening’s celebration, children of numerous communities performed dances and sung songs in their native languages.
