International Day, 16th February 3:15pm

International Day is the day when we celebrate culture and diversity at ISY.  This year the event, which is being led by the Parents Association, will be on Saturday 16th February and we are very much looking forward to seeing everyone there.  The event will start at 3:15pm which is when students will start to congregate in the gym.  Students will get into groups based on their nationality and behind their flag bearer.  At 4:00pm the parade will start where all the students will walk around the school grounds behind their flag wearing where possible, their national dress.

There will be a short opening ceremony after the parade and after this the food and culture stands for each country will be opened and available to visit.  There will also be a raffle with a wide range of prizes.  At 6pm a Cultural Show will begin in the lower court near the library where groups of students will perform acts celebrating culture and diversity.  

Sao Thanda Noi is the lead from the parent's side so if you have questions regarding stands then please get in touch directly with her.  If your question is about the Cultural Show or anything to do with the parade then please contact Ivy Kuhn ( who is coordinating things for ISY.
