Whilst International Day is a huge celebration of the music, dance, food and the achievements of our nations it also represents much more. This is an important and traditional way in which we show our interest and curiosity in each others’ countries, a mark of the respect we give each others’ cultures.
A Parade of Nations fanfared the day’s events with vivid colours and proud flag bearers introducing their nation group with the entire campus appreciating the 50 or more countries represented at BIS.
The truly international feel of the day was in large part due to the amazing Country Rooms where parent groups brought countries and cultures to life for our students to explore and enjoy. Thank you all so much! It is clear that there was so much time and effort that had gone into these rooms for the students’ benefit..
International Day 2018 retained so many of the traditional parts that make it such a great annual success for students but never standing still we introduced new features this year including an International STEAM Fair.
Also, as responsible global citizens, students and teachers were determined to make the whole event free of single use plastics. Students arrived at school with their own food containers to reuse all day as well as their drink bottles and reduced the waste from the event enormously.
