There are about 270 nationalities in the world and about a fifth of them are represented right in our very own KLASS community. Nonetheless, it is very important, especially today, that we actively encourage international awareness amongst the young. We must all learn to acknowledge, appreciate and respect both our differences and similarities.
To commemorate this, the KLASS Interact Club is arranging an International Week from 23rd - 27th November. Everyday we will have continent-themed events with MUN-styled debates on topical and international subjects, musical performances and dances.
On the last day, the International Understanding team of Interact Club will be entertaining us with brave students and teachers strutting the catwalk in our annual Fashion Show. The day will culminate in the much anticipated feasting, so please bring in your favourite national dish for all to share. Without the generous donations from parents and students, the event would not be successful!
As I am sure we are all aware, the ever increasing tide of refugees is an international dilemma, affecting us even here in Malaysia. So dress up in your national finery and donate a minimum of RM 5 to help the Syrian refugees here.
We would also like to take this opportunity to share our promotional video here.
Thank you in advance for the support.

Secretary of the Interact Club
