What is the Nations Festival?

The Nations Festival is an annual event that celebrates global diversity by weaving together culture, festivities, and education into a unified experience. Now in its 43rd year, the Festival is set for March 9, 2024, and invites the entire school community to engage in showcasing the histories, customs, languages, arts, religions, attire, and culinary traditions of various countries. This year's event will take place at our Main Campus from 8 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., offering a vibrant and immersive environment for all participants.

Students from each Grade partake in project-based learning, choosing a country to represent and conducting in-depth research to delve into its myriad facets. This initiative not only reflects one of the school's core values—Unity in Diversity—but also capitalizes on the multicultural makeup of our student body, which represents over 25 nations. It aims to foster a deeper understanding and appreciation of global cultures.

What is the Festival’s main goal?

The main goal of the Nations Festival is to foster a deep understanding and appreciation of global cultures among students, aligning with the school's foundational values, including Unity in Diversity. From the outset of the school year, students begin their preparations, immersing themselves in the study of a selected country's culture, history, and traditions. A unique aspect of this learning experience is the opportunity for students to gain insights from peers who are nationals of the countries being studied, enriching their understanding through firsthand accounts and cross-cultural exchanges, sometimes extending beyond the classroom through special meetings. This approach not only enhances the educational experience by grounding it in real-world perspectives but also promotes the school's ethos of fostering global citizenship, mutual respect, and an inclusive community that values the rich diversity of its student body and the wider world.
