Hey, Intercultural Day!
The Primary Years Program English Section of Chengdu Meishi International School have recently celebrated their annual Intercultural Day. The event took place last April 9, 2021 at PYP Building C. Once again it was a resounding success as our students with their parents shared and enjoyed the cultures and diversity of different countries. With five nationalities represented, it was a marvelous example on how our school has embraced diversity.
Intercultural Day gave us the opportunity to learn more about other countries; cultures and traditions and to welcome parents into the school. This event served as a break from the usual classroom activities and has allowed the students to showcase their talents and creativity.
Preparations began weeks ago with each of the five grade levels started planning their performances and for their exhibits. Each grade levels were given a country that they will represent, and they were given the option of what they will be performing.
