Friday was Multicultural Day at Sahel Academy.
We began our celebration with a Parade of Nations.
There are 22 countries represented in our student body and that's not counting the students whose parents come from two different countries.
Our students were dressed to the nines in traditional clothes from their homelands.
They got to enjoy traditional foods from a variety of countries - things like sushi, grasshoppers, maple syrup, chin chin, grits and apple pie.
The students got to enjoy or participate in dances from a variety of countries.
Here's the Africa group breaking it down:
In each room the students learned interesting facts about the countries represented. They saw a variety of artifacts from the countries and they got to participate in games or activities unique to those countries. There were wrestling and taekwondo matches, a type of Korean jacks, a fashion contest, "snowball fights" and even a chance to get a little henna on your hands among other things.
Here the Swiss kids sing a song about a Cuckoo Clock:
Celebrating the amazing mix of cultures at our school brought a smile to many faces!
