Every year, an International Week is held at the Secondary Campus allowing us to embrace our school’s diverse culture.
This time round, the event was planned by the Interact Club, who promoted international understanding by including activities that encouraged knowledge and awareness as well as cultural entertainment. As usual, each day was dedicated to a different continent and different activities and performances were held during break and lunch throughout the week.
Performances included musical pieces by the jazz band, orchestra and solo performers, as well as a commedia dell’arte by the Drama Department. New additions to this event included a sophisticated student-run MUN conference on ‘The Right of the Child to Enjoy the Highest Attainable Standard of Health’ as well as an origami competition that encouraged house participation.
The whole purpose of International Week is to create a sense of community; we celebrate our different cultures together, which was well reciprocated by the student body. This was also clearly illustrated on International Day itself, when all students came not only in their national dresses, but other cultural costumes. The highly anticipated fashion show and food fair was also a highlight.
Despite the challenges and problems we faced along the way, the immense effort put into planning and executing International Week meant that the week was a resounding success.
