The IB’s First Intercultural Day 

IB学部火热开展首个“国际文化日”活动

On the last day of term before the Christmas break, the IB department held their first Intercultural Day event. This was an event planned and executed by their Student’s Council, who began preparing all the IB students and staff for it a few weeks ago. Ten different cultures/ countries were selected based on staff and student profiles as well as language interests, and ranged from South East Asia as the biggest group to Germany and Mexico.

本学期圣诞假期前的最后一天,IB学部举办了首个“国际文化节”。这次大型活动由IB学部学生会全程筹划,他们在数周前就开始组织全体师生共同参与到其中来。他们根据师生们各自不同的文化背景和语言兴趣,最终挑选出十个不同文化和地区成立小组:从最大组别的东南亚地区到德国和墨西哥。

After weeks of discussion, getting displays ready, food recipes sourced and tried out, costumes ordered/ borrowed, and special items such as national anthems and traditional games prepared, the ten groups set up their separate stalls. Before the official event got under way, the Performing Arts CAS group also gave everyone a rendition of “Last Christmas” to set the festive mood for the season. Parents and other department leaders were invited and were fascinated by the amount of preparation that went into some cultural groups’ stalls. Others were attracted by the huge variety of interesting foods and could not stop going back for more!

经过几周的热烈讨论,在准备好展区、食谱、租订服装、备好了文化展示项目——各国或地区的颂歌以及传统小游戏之后,十个小组分别摆开了展台。在“国际文化日”活动正式开始之前,IB学部CAS课程的表演社团的同学们为全体师生演奏了一曲《去年圣诞节》,点燃了整个节日的氛围。家长们以及其他学部的领导们也应邀来到活动现场,大家都被每个小组精心准备的各种特色小吃深深吸引,流连忘返。

After everyone has had their fill, the event drew to a close. The Student’s Council members then helped to clean up the place and tidied up the classrooms. Some students remarked they found out more about other countries’ cultures through the event, while others simply enjoyed the whole experience with their teachers, family and friends. Overall, it was a meaningful event that put an excellent end to the term thus far. Let’s look forward to another Intercultural Day next year!!

节日活动将近尾声之时,大家都大快朵颐。学生会的同学们帮忙一起清洁场地,打扫教室。同学们说通过此次活动以及与师生和家长们的合作交流,深切地了解到了其他国家的不同文化,不同习俗,并乐在其中。此次意义深远的“国际文化日”活动为本学期画上了完满的句号。大家都翘首期盼明年“国际文化日”的到来!
