Why Celebrate International Day at School?
The culmination of this learning experience is the International Day Celebration, a full day of “travel around the world” where each group moves from one classroom to another learning about the other
cultures. Grade 8 students simultaneously hosted slide show presentations in class to share knowledge of their cultures. Students wore their traditional clothes and brought food from their culture symbolizing their pride. The purpose of International Day is to expose students to the differences, and to enable us to understand, respect, and appreciate other cultures.
