Celebrating Our Cultural Diversity on Cultural Day!

This Friday afternoon, the International G2 had a Cultural Day celebration as a part of their UoI studies. Students shared food, dances, songs, clothing, games or traditions from their own cultures and explained the meaning behind their presentation to other classmates and parents.

今天下午,国际部二年级举办了一次“文化日”庆祝活动:每个学生带来了可以展示自己文化的食物、舞蹈、歌曲、服饰、游戏和其他传统,并向其他同学和家长们解释了自己所呈现的事物或表演的文化意义。


We found a big world in this small class! There were students who came in their national costumes; some taught us different languages including Korean, German, Thai and Arabic; Samuel showed us how to make traditional Chinese food dumplings; Nelson introduced the animals in Australia; Emma sang the national anthem of Canada, etc…

有的同学教我们说韩语、德语、泰语和阿拉伯语,有的同学和妈妈一起演示了如何制作饺子这种好吃的中华传统食物,有的同学介绍了澳大利亚的各种动物,有的同学展示了各具特色的民族服装,还有的同学给我们唱了加拿大的国歌,等等……小小的班级里,藏着一个大大的世界!


The International G2 is working on their second Unit of Inquiry in IB PYP – Where We Are in Place and Time. In this Unit students are expected to learn to celebrate and respectCultural Diversity by exploring the features of their own culture and seeing the similarities and differences between cultures and countries.

国际部二年级的小朋友们正在学习IB PYP幼小项目的第二个超学科探究单元——我们所处的时空。孩子们要学习自己文化的内涵,了解其他文化的特点,从而加深对不同时间、不同空间的文化相似性与差异性的理解,最终学会尊重这个世界的文化多样性


The forces of globalization are exposing us to a more and more diverse environment. No doubt students today will need to learn how to interact in such setting. At Changsha WES Academy, by attending school with a diverse population, students can develop an understanding of the perspectives of children from different backgrounds.

随着全球化趋势的发展,我们所处的环境越来越多样化。可以毫无疑问地说,学习如何适应这样的环境,是对现如今的学生们的必然要求。而在长沙玮希国际学校国际部,在与来自不同文化背景的老师、同学一起学习的过程中,孩子们慢慢地学会尊重、理解他人,并且更加热爱自己的文化。
