Last week’s International Week provided a wonderful opportunity for the children of St Andrews International School to come together and experience the
rich tradition, history and culture of the 19 different nationalities represented at the school.
The Dutch community
Throughout the week, the children learned about the different continents each morning in their own class groups. Such “hands on” activities as painting
in the style of aboriginal art, having a visit from some Chinese chickens and making Thai desserts were thoroughly enjoyed. The colourful and interesting “travel agents”
in the foyer were an excellent exhibition of the work being completed by the students. In the afternoons, the children worked in their nationality groups to produce an
amazing “international newspaper” and practice their performances.
The Japanese and Korean
children do a fine performance!
Friday’s events were most enjoyable. The international parade was a wonderful sight to see! All the international food stalls were excellent - full of
delicious home favourites. The rain dance from the American Indians certainly worked, as on Friday afternoon there was a terrific downpour.
Some traditional Japanese
Many thanks to the parents who put such a huge effort into making the international buffet such a success.
The students, staff and families of St Andrews International School look forward to more of these festivals next year.
