Thank you to everyone who joined us for the International Festival for All Families last Friday night. The rain couldn’t keep our community from celebrating our diversity through delicious food, fun entertainment, and thought-provoking programming put together by the dedicated members of the Global Awareness Committee of the Parents’ Association.
The night kicked off with storytelling, African drumming, and Henna, with plenty of time for interested parties to enjoy all three. Henna was a huge hit thanks to stick-on stencils that made the art form a bit easier to achieve while still producing beautiful flowers, butterflies, and scrolling patterns. Many of the Upper School students attended the showing of the Ted Talk: “The Danger of a Single Story” and participated in a discussion following the film.
Before the long line formed at the food tables, the younger students paraded through Festival giggling and laughing dressed in clothing from the countries they chose to represent. And as usual, the food did not disappoint, and no one went home hungry.
A very special thank you to the families that provided the many excellent dishes for us to share.
