ist-un-dayThe windy, cloudy and cold weather could not dampen the fervor and excitement that goes with the annual International School of Tianjin (IST) UN Day. It was a fabulous day and the riot of color from national costumes, the flying UN Day flags and the wide grins on everyone’s faces added a lot of warmth and light to the day.

Students first participated in the parade of nations around the front of the school buildings exhibiting the great diversity that exists in the IST community. One of the highlights of the day is the UN Day Assembly held in the school’s theater. The school’s theater, which has a seating capacity of 520, was jam packed and overflowing with a very enthusiastic and enthralled audience.

This year, the celebration featured a wonderful collection no less than sixteen dancing, singing and musical performances from around the world, presented by IST students, parents and staff. Countries represented on stage included China, Denmark, Japan, New Zealand, Africa, Korea, Germany and India. The performers at this spellbinding assembly included various members of the IST community including students, parents, teachers and our own local staff members. This year IST also invited students and teachers of the Tianjin Deaf and Mute School to join in the festivities – the students presented a very beautiful and elegant Dunhuang Thousand Hands Dance that moved many to tears.

During the remainder of the morning, the students took part in activities that focused on the theme for the day - ‘Refugees’. An amazingly diverse home-cooked lunch followed prepared by IST parents from around the world in which the whole community enjoyed. After lunch, everybody converged to the Han Foyer for a school photo. All in all, this UN Day at IST, as always, was a day filled with amazing memories.
