An International Week!

One great thing (of many) in our school, community and host island, Sakhalin, is the way we celebrate our diversity, the way we embrace new people we meet and how, as the British Ambassador put it this week, we are all diplomats for each of our countries. We are making links, sharing our cultural similarities and differences, respecting our different traditions and beginning to solve similar problems together.

On Tuesday we welcomed the Minister Counsellor for the British Embassy and found out about the role of an Embassy and his job.

On Friday we hosted our International Children's Day.

For both events we welcomed Gymnasium 3 who supported the events by leading a cultural song and dance and by leading craft activities. Gymnasium 3 showed our shared belief that guides our collaboration; one thought of and designed by a child from one of the Gymnasiums and selected by the President of Exxon Mobil.

International Children's Day was also supported by many volunteer parents. Without your help we could not have put on such a great event. Thanks for being all together with us.
