International Day 2017
International day was a success on every level. The students had clearly taken on the message that our wonderful planet Earth needs our respect and care and that we can all make a difference. This was exemplified by our Y7 and Y8 students in their highly professional and effective drama production on Friday. The environmental quizzes also challenged the students thinking. The ‘upcycling’ activities and stalls in the afternoon were a further way of showing that we can all work to ‘reduce, reuse and recycle’.
And importantly the day was enormous fun. Everyone entered into the spirit in the morning with our International parade of costumes and colours. It was a real celebration of the diversity of our international community. It was also really quite emotional to hear the whole school singing together.
The international picnic was just incredible. It was a global market place with delicious fare from all over the world and it was all contributed by parents and students, who had spent many hours baking and preparing. The atmosphere was relaxed and there were smiles and laughter all around.
The silent auction was so well supported by local business and by our community and the funds raised by the auction, together with the funds raised by the international picnic and stalls have not totalled yet but I have the feeling that we may exceed last year’s figure. The World Wildlife Friends of Thailand are delighted and will be coming into school to share with our students exactly how our fund raising will impact on environmental and animal conservation.
The success of the day is due to the efforts and hard work of the PTG and all our school community. Thank you. What a wonderful day to have as we approach the end of our second year.
A final thank to all the businesses that supported our silent auction.
