As we look towards the final three weeks of this first half term, time seems to have really flown by. It certainly has been very busy and these last three weeks certainly have lots going on. The highlight of this period though will be our International Days at High School and Primary School.
On Friday 11th October at High School campus we shall be celebrating our first International Day. This year each year group in High School students will be exploring a different continent for the day. They will then be engaged in a variety of activities throughout the event getting to know about traditions, cultures, exploration and even sports in each continent. Many of these activities have been designed by tutors, but they have also incorporated student ideas and suggestions to create a really exciting day for all. Here are how the different continents have assigned:
With 49 different nationalities represented in the High School’s International Day, we are looking forward to another fantastic event where we celebrate our own traditions while also learning about those of others in the community. We will be celebrating throughout break time, lunch and in assemblies with fascinating dance and choir performances, as well as the fantastic food hall which is generously being organised by parent representatives and our PTG.
Following the High School celebration, on the last day of the half term, Friday 18th October, the Primary School will enjoy their International Day.
The day for Foundation Stage will begin at 8am with their ‘catwalk’ of International Costumes. Following that, two assemblies will take place. Each assembly will start with the flag parade and be followed by some great music pieces produced and performed by our musical ensembles who have been practising to be ready for this performance.
