This year, YCIS Qingdao’s International Day was held on March 3, 2017. On the Day, which is one of our student body’s popular yearly activities, students and teachers came to school dressed in colourful outfits representing their home countries.
At 8.15 a.m., everyone congregated in the 5th Floor Hall for our Parade of Nations. Students and teachers took turns to go on stage with each country’s national anthem playing in the background.
After the parade, students spent the rest of the morning shuttling between classrooms, each of which was set up to represent a country. Touring the classroom stations gave our students an in-depth look at and increased appreciation of the world’s diversity.
After a busy morning, hungry students were treated to a buffet lunch with food from all over the world. Parents cooked and brought their favourite dishes from their home countries and shared them with the entire school community.
Towards the end of the day, there were country-themed performances in our 5th Floor Hall. Parents and students performed songs, dances and skits for the excited crowd.
We would like to thank everyone who went out of their way to make this day so successful and rewarding for our children.
