ssis-intl-friendship-dayShanghai Singapore International School (SSIS) celebrated International Friendship Day (IFD) at its MinHang campus on May 25th

The MinHang PSG volunteers arrived early in the morning to decorate their booths with items representing their home countries. Some parents spent numerous days planning, preparing and cooking authentic food, games and activities, all for the SSIS community. SSIS preschool and primary school students were invited to dress in their beautiful and colorful national costumes for IFD, and this further enhanced the celebratory mood! 

The IFD is an annual event where the SSIS community comes to together to raise funds and to celebrate the joy of friendship and appreciation of different cultures and heritage within the community. It is such a privilege to be able to celebrate the differences and appreciate each other’s backgrounds through such an event.

This year, the MinHang PSG volunteers set up and manned booths to represent the community. A variety of mouth-watering food, fun activities and games, and ethnic products and services were made available to the visitors. A long queue was formed at the Indian booth where a personal henna tattoo could be done for a nominal charge. 

While preschool students enjoyed their own potluck lunch, primary school students participated in an array of fun and exciting games held at the school field. They enjoyed doing activities, such as the tug of war competition, under the beautiful sunny weather!

The fund raised will be donated to the Heart to Heart Foundation Shanghai, an organization where volunteers spend time entertaining children hospitalized with heart defects or help to raise funds for these needy children and their families.
