International Day

Friday was international day at the academy.  Our school is filled with diversity as there are 23 countries represented.  This day is a tradition where students dress in traditional wear from their country and bring a popular dish to contribute to a potluck style meal.  The day is filled with a parade of the nations where students walk from the campus up to the field, carrying their flag.  Parents are there to take pictures and then follow students up to the field where they then sit within their country.  The bleachers looked so neat as you scanned from one side to the other.  There was then a traditional Malawian dance as well as a drumming group that performed.  This was followed by the singing of national anthems and topped off with delicious food!  Here are some pictures.  Hope you enjoy!

  1. This is so beautiful to see and read about. Also, thank you for reminding all of us about how truly blessed we are and how spoiled we are in this country, even those that have struggles are blessed. I am grateful for you, your friendship and sharing your time and thoughts. Loved the wedding photos and learning a little bit about those traditions. love you friend
