Harrow International Day

On the 14th May 2021 Harrow hosted our annual International Day. Our international community at Harrow teaches us tolerance and understanding, and prepares our students to enter a diverse and international future. 

Our students, parents and staff got dressed up and were immersed with joy of experiencing cultures of different countries. Let us review the wonderful moments of the day with a lovely video and photos!

5月的期待是什么?当然是超超超有趣的哈罗国际日!这一天,哈罗校园化身成为“小小地球村”,摆设了一个个带有浓浓风土人情的国家“站点”。老师、同学们则换上了五颜六色的民族传统服饰,每走一步,仿佛就来到一个全新的国度。老师和同学们拥有了哪些新奇美妙的体验呢?让我们借着视频与照片,回顾当日的精彩瞬间吧!

We tried delicious food from different countries provided by parents such as Chinese dumplings, Japanese sushi, South African milk tart, New Zealand kiwi cookies and Mexican Tacos to name a few tasty morsels.

对于小小吃货们而言,国际日现场可以称得上是美食天堂。孩子们不出国门,就能享用各国代表们精心烹饪的风味美食:中国饺子、糖葫芦、日本寿司、南非波波、新西兰奇异果饼干、墨西哥玉米饼…一次性尝遍世界美食!

Teachers and students decorated stalls providing enriching and educational activities such as the Irish ‘Wellie throwing competition’, the South African ‘Lolly Pong’, Indian rangoli pattern, Aboriginal art work, Nigerian jewellery making, Korean musical instrument and making Northern Lights in a jar from Iceland.

除了美食,一些经典游戏也很能体现一个国家的文化与历史。校园里一个个风格迥异的摊位上,孩子们在欢声笑语中体验了一个又一个精彩的游戏与活动:爱尔兰长筒靴投掷比赛、南非投掷球比赛、印度兰戈利图案绘制、澳大利亚土著艺术作品制作、尼日利亚珠宝制作、韩国乐器体验、冰岛北极光罐制作……

The day culminated in an international ensemble of Argentine Tango, Japanese drums, French singing and a Canadian Stomp. 

国际日现场的音乐与舞蹈表演,将现场的气氛一次次推向高潮!才华横溢的哈罗学子献上了一个个精彩的音乐表演:古筝、架子鼓、小提琴、钢琴…赢得了现场阵阵喝彩。此外,孩子们还体验了阿根廷探戈、日本鼓、法国歌唱、加拿大跺脚舞…进一步深入体验不同国家的文化。

The finale was the grand raffle draw with some amazing prizes including a cuddly bear taller than the student who won it. Our Harrow community raised a significant amount of money which will go to: Heart to Heart, Second Chance Animal Aid and Home Sweet Home.

最终压轴的是激动人心的抽奖环节,奖品包括一只巨型熊玩偶!在此次国际日活动中,所有筹集的善款将捐献给Heart to Heart, Second Chance Animal Aid以及Home Sweet Home慈善组织。

A big thank you to all the parents, staff and students who have supported this event.

对于在本次活动中鼎力相助的家长和学生们,我们也献上最诚挚的感激!
