International Day

International Day happens to be my favourite day of the school year in every school that I have taught at… not because it presents the annual conundrum of choosing which single country or culture I identify with, but because it is such a wonderful celebration of the cultural diversity and linguistic backgrounds that our students come with.

This year’s International Day at ISL was no different: fabulous display of national pride from various countries, gorgeous costumes, delicious food and fantastic performances all came together to make it a great day!

I was quite partial to this beautiful song that the primary choir sang, mainly because it is in Swahili and I understood the lyrics, but also because their melodious voices made me pang with nostalgia for Tanzania and Kenya.
