Weeks of planning go into the setup of the various country rooms which are hosted by groups of enthusiastic parents. This year students were able to journey around 19 rooms representing 26 different countries. The food was wonderful, the atmosphere electric, with some outstanding country rooms on display, and a huge array of activities on hand for students to participate in.
Each student received a passport which they used to travel around the rooms and answer a key question in each room to receive that country’s stamp on their passport. Completed passports were then posted into their relevant house box with house points awarded as part of the school house competition.
The day culminated in a fashion and culture show in the auditorium. The fashion show showcased some excellent and imaginative costumes and, as usual, the culture show remained one of the highlights of the day. I think the student's particulaly enjoyed the staff's culture show efforts this year! As they performed the PPAP song.
Our warm thanks go to all the parents who prepared food and helped out on the day. Special thanks to the Secondary PTG for their outstanding contribution. International Day would not be possible without the amazing support the school receives from parents.
I think the photos speak for themselves as to just what a wonderful day this was, as does this timelapse of the whole campus coming together.
