With over a quarter of our student body being international, it is extremely important to recognize and celebrate the many cultures we have present in our school. Intercultural Week has run in the school for two years and involves celebrating the countries of a continent on each day of the week as follows:
- Asia Day
- Europe Day
- Australia Day
- Africa Day
- The Americas Day
This year Intercultural Week will take place from 4 to 8 November 2019. International Night will take place on 6 November 2019.
Students and staff work together to create an atmosphere in the school representing the countries of the continent being celebrated each day. There have been competitions, displays of students’ work, international cuisine, music, and other events during the course of the week to celebrate all the nationalities in our school. Take a look at photos of this year’s events at the school website gallery!
One of the highlights of this festival is the spectacular International Night, which is a long-standing feature of life in St Andrew’s College, giving students, parents and staff the opportunity to promote and celebrate their cultures.
If you would like to discuss next year’s Intercultural Week or International Night, please contact Ms Leggett by telephone at the College or on firstname.lastname@example.org
We look forward to seeing you all in November when we pay tribute to the nations of the world and their wonderfully diverse cultural traditions.
