International Day at the Primary School
As an international school, we take very seriously our duty to promote cross-cultural exchanges and learning opportunities. In an era when isolationism appears to be taking hold globally, we want our students to be those who will reach out and themselves be the bridge across the waters of disdain and insensitivity.
As Chinese President Xi Jinping stated only earlier this week, it is vitally important globally that countries increase their friendship circles, making every effort to develop international communication channels.
As such, the BWYA primary school was delighted to host International Day events last Friday, jointly organised by the Enrichment and Publications Office and the Parent Teacher Association. We celebrated 13 countries’ cultures and history, and in particular were honoured to welcome Mr. Nugrahadi H. Yuwono from the Indonesian Embassy in Beijing (Information and Socio-Cultural Affairs Officer) and Ms. Miranda Herbert from the New Zealand Embassy in Beijing (Counsellor for Education) to further share the countries with our students.
