What a week, here at BIS Hanoi! I have tasted baklava from Syria in Year 6, tapped my foot whilst watching Greek dancing in Year 3; been mesmerized by the Year 4 demonstration of the tango; taken part in a Skype conversation with children in Indonesia; watched Egyptian pyramid construction and mummification in Year 1 and watched Dutch tulip making in Year 5. This is just to name a few of the exciting activities which have enthused our young learners this week.
We all started our day in the Departure Lounge, eagerly awaiting flights with our passports in our hands. After security checks and passport control, we boarded the respective planes and were transported on a terrific journey of exploration. The celebrations reached a climax today as we celebrated our achievements and shared our learning
The grand finale was a Parade of Nations in the Auditorium followed by a short taste of what each class have been learning. Amazing and catchy dancing from Colombia, South America contrasted beautifully with the calm and tuneful Kookaburra Sings in the Old Gum Tree from Australia. The Bollywood Dancing from F1 and the soulful tunes of Jamaica were two other memorable snapshots. A fun day was had by all!
A would like to say a huge thank you to all of our parents who gave very willingly of their time in order to make our International Week so special. The parents from Korea, Ukraine, Russia, Netherlands, Mexico and India were fantastic in sharing a little of their culture and bringing our learning alive.
I look forward to seeing many of you tomorrow at the Winter Carnival.
