From an international tribal style dance held in the music room to a running of the bulls, the students of Gwin Elementary experienced nearly every aspect of the world on Jan. 25's International Day.
The theme was “together we can make a better world!” and that is exactly what ESL teacher Rebecca Salas hoped for when planning the event.
“I feel like the International Day was a huge success. We tried to make it a hands-on activity for the students because that is what is fun for them,” Salas said.
Even the cafeteria provided snacks from around the world for the students to enjoy.
“We want to spark the students' interest in the rest of the world. In addition, we want to instill pride in those that are ethnic so they can appreciate their culture,” Salas said.
The International Fashion Show featured models from every grade who wore outfits to represent their culture or a culture that they found interesting. Students who were not models came to the show and could ask any questions they had about the world.
