Let’s celebrate culture

At the event parents, children and friends of the school community prepared national stands to showcase different cultural artefact, costumes, and music and food dishes to the visitors. Like the previous event more than 1000 visitors cramped the school yard with the active participation of 40 Embassies with children attending at the school.
