On the 28th of February 2015, the school community gathered to celebrate International Day, a long standing Raha tradition. From the front gates all the way to PYP Pitch, parents and students from all around the world gathered to showcase our community’s unique cultural diversity.
Like past International Days, the event began with a school-wide assembly, where Principal Wayne McInnis addressed us, highlighting what it is to be a “true citizen of the 21st century.” This was followed by speeches and musical performances by Raha’s students.
At the end of the assembly, the greatly anticipated Global Village opened, where parents and students had set up stalls for their home countries showcasing traditional food, costumes, and even games!
Among the many goodies on offer, the food sold out the quickest.Where else would people be able to have a plate of 'koshari', eat some 'mansaf', and enjoy 'tacos' at the same time?
With approximately 82 different nationalities represented in our school, International Day is the perfect opportunity to celebrate each other’s cultures and Raha's diversity. It is days like these that remind us how culture enriches our daily experiences and enhances Raha’s learning environment.
