Elementary International Day A Celebration Around the World

ISP has many traditions, but one of the longest running is our celebration of cultures and traditions that are part of our community. This year, our celebrations grew and we want to say a huge thank you to our parent volunteers, ably co-ordinated by Sarah Tatum, who put together a thoughtful and enjoyable ‘world’s fair’. With 17 countries represented, all of the members of the elementary school were able to travel the world with their passports, learning about cultures and traditions in countries as varied as Denmark, Peru and India.

 

The children then had the opportunity to parade around the Elementary School wearing clothes that are traditional to their home country, before enjoying some very tasty food. Thank you again to parents who came and supported the parade and to all those who sent food for everyone to enjoy. It truly is a day to celebrate why #It’s not about me. It’s about us.


This year, we are continuing to think about our internationalism by focussing on language and education. Thinking about the UN Sustainable Development Goal #4 - the right of all children to education. We will continue our discussions and out sharing ahead of the International day of the child on Tuesday 20th November.
