International Day is a chance for our students and families to learn and showcase about all the amazing countries we have under one roof here at our school. This is a chance for families to bring rich traditions from their home countries or delicious snacks, and for our families to learn all about each other’s cultures. We are so excited to showcase over 25 countries around the world.
Location: A9 Old Gymnasium, Outside A9 Old Gymnasium, and Soccer Field
Cost: Free of charge (Only DAIS, DHA and DHBS Students and immediate family can come. We will not offer this event for outsiders.)
Food Vendors Coming: (Pay Cash or Wechat) Mi Casa Mexican, Casa Italian, Wandering Moose, Hard Rock Cafe, Beima Cafe, Shanhuai Japanese Sushi, and Conor’s Place (Ice Cream)
Music Venue: Mrs. Melody Gifford is putting together an amazing line-up right out on the Soccer Field. Please join some amazing Student Performances, Teacher Performances and Hard Rock’s Amazing Live Band as well. This will be happening from 4:00 to 7:00PM. Just look for the stage and people dancing the night away.
Passport Book: All children who attend the event can pick-up a Passport Book from the PSP Booth. The children can participate in all booths, learning about each country they visit to. During the participation of each activity, the child will receive one stamp. Once the child collects all the stamps, they can turn the Passport Book in for a prize, back at the PSP Booth.
Flag Ceremony: We will kick off the Flag Ceremony around the track at 3:55 PM. We are asking all families who would like to carry their home countries flag, to please report to the Soccer Field by 3:55PM. We will make sure one student is holding each flag that is participating on International Day. This will be the kick-off to the event inside. The walk is around the track only.
Horse Back Riding: We are looking to bring in the famous Springfield Equestrian Club again, located on the far side of the Secondary Building. We ask all families interested, to please sign-up early for an amazing 10-minute ride for only 25 RMB. This is your chance to ride for a small cost and learn all about what Springfield has to offer right next door to our school.
