Last week our upper elementary students had International Day. Students dressed up to represent their home country. It was so fun to see everyone in their costumes!
Here’s David and his sixth grade class:
And the entire upper elementary:
After lunch, the students went outside for games:
While the kids played, some mothers set up the International Cafe. The spread was as amazingly diverse as our students! The food was all so yummy! Rice, fish chips, chicken, potato cakes, potato soup, humus, no bake cookies, homemade caramel, pies…
I don’t think I’d eaten any Korean food before we came to Turkey. Here’s kimbop:
And – be still my heart – delicious, authentic Italian tiramisù!
What a privilege it is to a part of such a diverse community! It is a diversity that is celebrated every day.
The lower elementary students have their International Day next. I can’t wait to see what they wear and bring!
