On Friday April 15th, at Hanova we celebrated one of our favourite annual traditions: International Day. Diversity, Open mindedness and Intercultural understanding play an important role in our community, and International Day give our students the chance to learn about other cultures, their traditions, dresses, music, among other things.
At the beginning of the day, we had the traditional Parade. 21 countries enjoying and celebrating the multiculturalism in our school.
Later, our students were invited to visit all the corners of the world represented by the continents: Americas, Europe, Africa, Asia, Oceania, and Antarctic. Also, they were invited to play different games and sports that are part of some cultures, such 毽子，鸡毛毽, badminton, dodgeball, stilts, four squares, and rugby throw.
At the end of the day, the whole community were watching an exciting basketball game students vs teachers/staff. It was perfect as a closure of an amazing day for everybody.
“It is not our differences that divide us. It is our inability to recognize, accept and celebrate those differences.” – Audre Lorde
