The cultural evening held on May 8 was organised by the WMSSA. Various interesting cultural items were put up by the different clubs and associations from the seven centres. The night's performances were filled with applause and encouragement from the audience. The cultural evening was indeed educational as well as entertaining. Perhaps the highlights of the evening were the sketches put up by AMSSA and MUMA (Massey centre.) The former presented a sketch on the cut-back issue, encouraging all concerned to support the campaign against the policy. The latter's sketch depicted the plight of the squattors who defied eviction orders from the authority. The sketches undoubtedly reflected the aspiration of the people and the problems they are facing.
Malaysians, Kiwis, Fijians, and Samoans took part in the cultural events — these included songs, folk dances, instrumentals and solos. The guitarist solo, Don Franks, got everyone joining in the chorus with his attractive composition, "Detente — I can't Trust You Anymore."
The evening ended with a slide-show presented by a member of the Lincoln College, showing the interesting international community life there.
