Despite predictions of rain, the weather held and more than 3,000 people came together to celebrate the diversity and uniqueness of the Suzhou Singapore International School (SSIS) community.

The Parade of Nations was a colorful spectacle of traditional costumes and national pride. The home-cooked food was delicious. Where else in Suzhou do you get food from Denmark, Switzerland or the Czech Republic? And the shopping….with over 100 vendors there was something for everyone.

The day was topped off by the entertainment. There were student rock bands, concert performances, and an abundance of international cultural performances from Samuraiaki Jiu Jitsu demonstrations and traditional Indian dancing to the New Zealand and Pacific Islander’s kapa haka.

Best of all, the profits from this fun-filled day go to support the Bo’Ai School in Suzhou, SIP Core of Youth Care of the Young, Help-Kids Qinghai and the SSIS Charity Committee. The final tally is yet to be announced, but it is expected to be almost 300,000 RMB.

The International Family Day would not be possible without the generous support from sponsors and volunteers.
