International Food Fair and the Parade of Nations held on 23 March proved to be a roaring success again, showcasing the amazing cultural diversity of Nord Anglia International School, Pudong in the best way possible – through dressing up and food!

Students, teachers and even parents showed their national pride, dressing in national costume and colors, and waving the flags of their countries, marched to their national anthems around the sports ground.

All that marching certainly worked up an appetite for the International Food Fair, three hours of gastronomic delights from around the globe. From flying roti and popping rice cakes, to luscious chocolate mousse and pandan jellies, and with just about everything in between, the International Food Fair gave students a small and delicious taste of each of the nations represented. Many parents had spent days baking and cooking to deliver this amazing feast to the very appreciative students and teachers.

The day was interspersed with wonderful parent-organized entertainment. The Korean mums put on a very skillful display of Taekwondo, dressed in their Korea national suits and looked rather fierce as they went through their routines, with one even breaking timber with her hand and foot! The Indian students dressing in saris of rainbow colors presented a beautiful and energetic Holi dance. The crowd was impressed by the skill and fearlessness of a Malaysian Tea Dancer, who whirled around and poured tea from awe-inspiring heights, without spilling a drop.

Making a very glamorous appearance, the Chinese mums donned their most beautiful qipaos for a parade fit for a Milan catwalk. As a special treat, the Chinese parents also organized for the Shanghai Opera School to perform an excerpt from The Monkey King. The actors, in bold and impressive makeup and costumes, performed acrobatics and danced to traditional Chinese music.

Many NAIS Pudong students and teachers regarded it as the “best day of the year.”
