ist-un-dayOn 22 October, the International School of Tianjin (IST) celebrated United Nations Day, with this year’s event focusing on the Look Out! theme, a challenge to all members of its international community to ‘look out’ beyond their own personal perspectives and immediate needs in consideration of others and in pursuit of a better and more peaceful world. The programmes and activities for the day gave special emphasis to the following three IB Learner Profile dispositions:

Open-minded: IST students accept and celebrate the diversity found among their community, and look for ways in which to learn about other cultures and nations.

Principled: IST students show respect for all cultures, nationalities and the environment.

Knowledgeable: IST students explore issues of global and international significance and seek to understand the many experiences, ideas and perspectives of the countries and people in the community.

As always, the IST community came to school on UN Day dressed in beautiful national and traditional clothing. Making the day even more special was the high level of parental participation in the day’s events, including the Parade of Nations, Concert and, UN Day Photo. And once again the parents prepared and served an incredible international lunch for the entire school to enjoy.
