Wonderful Memories from IFD 2019

With much anticipation from our whole school community, Changsha WES Academy ushered in the grandest festival party of the year – “2019 International Family Day” on May 18th. This party is for all of our families, integrating all of the aspects that make our school special; environmental protection, health and charity.

Students, parents, teachers and members from more than 20 countries and regions including China, the United States, Australia, Japan, and South Korea participated in the party. They witnessed a “positive energy carnival” that embodies the cultural exchanges between China and the West and the transmission of happiness and sharing. Everyone felt the cultural charm from different ethnic groups.

5月18日,在师生及家长的期盼中长沙玮希国际学校,迎来了年度最盛大的节日party——“2019国际家庭日“。这是一场以国际家庭为主轴,融合家庭、环保、健康、慈善为主题的嘉年华园游会。

来自中国、美国、澳大利亚、日本、韩国等20多个国家和地区的众多学生、家长、教师以及社会人士共同参与,见证了一场凝聚着中西文化交流和爱心传递的“正能量狂欢”,现场感受到了来自不同民族的文化魅力。

This time is based on the theme of the greener earth. People of different nationalities, different skin colors and different cultures have gathered together as a global village. All of us should protect our earth.

本次国际家庭日以绿色家园为主题,不同民族、不同肤色、不同文化的人们汇聚成了地球村,我们都需要一起努力保护好我们的家园。

The centerpiece of our IFD as has become a tradition is the wonderful performances. Students of different cultural backgrounds in different grades brought a variety of amazing acts, which fully demonstrated the style of the students of Changsha WES Academy.

欢快的节日少不了精彩的演出,从幼儿部到高中部,不同年级不同文化背景的学生们,都带来了异彩纷呈的节目,充分展示了长沙玮希国际学校学生们的风采。

As a family day, in addition to the wonderful performances also included world food, such as: German sausages, Korean hand rolls, nutritious yoghurt, and Changsha specialty snacks. After eating and drinking, there were many parent-child games. Many of these booths were jointly created by parents and children. The food was full of taste, the games brought happiness, and the children also experienced the thrill of starting a business.

作为家庭日,现场除了有精彩的节目还集合了世界美食与亲子游戏,来自德国的烤肠、韩国的手卷、营养丰富的乳酸奶、长沙特色小吃等,吃饱喝足了,还有趣味亲子游戏,这些摊位有很多都是由家长与孩子共同策划创立,美食丰满了大家的味蕾,游戏带来了快乐,同时还让孩子们体验到了创业的快感。

Changsha WES Academy’s annual “International Family Day” is not only a grand gathering of friendship and cultural exchanges, but also a public platform that brings together Chinese and Western cultural exchanges where the whole school community are encouraged to contribute to the welfare of our chosen charities. Grade 9 students had their own area where they worked hard to raise money for their charities.

长沙玮希国际学校一年一度的“国际家庭日”,不仅仅是一次分享友谊,交流文化的盛会,学校还联合社会各界,共同发起了一个凝聚中西文化交流和爱心传递的公益平台:在交流日的校园里,特别开辟了有社会专业社团以及学生自发的爱心募捐区域。

Volunteers from China Concern and Butterfly Children’s Hospices also brought homemade handicrafts. These exquisite handicrafts were appreciated by the families and the caring people.

来自CC(International China Concern国际关心中国慈善协会)和Butterfly Children’s Hospices( 蝴蝶之家儿童关怀中心),的两个公益机构的志愿者们,也带来了自制的小手工艺品等,这些精美的手工艺品让参加活动的家庭与爱心人士们,都赞叹不已。

It is amazing to the see the spirit of community that IFD brings to our lives. Although the time went by so quickly on this day, the feeling of happiness will continue for much longer and the memories will last forever.

国际家庭日将精彩纷呈的社区风采带进我们的生活。虽然在这一天时间过得很快,但快乐的感觉会持续更久,记忆将会永驻。

With this is mind we would especially like to thank our wonderful community (parents, students and teachers) who worked so hard to make this day so memorable and special. 

 

So where next you may ask? Well, we have already started planning IFD 2020…

怀着美好的心情,我们特别要感谢我们优秀的社区(家长、学生和老师),他们付出了巨大的努力,让这一天变得如此难忘和特别。

那么,接下来你可能会很好奇我们明年的安排? 嗯,我们已经开始计划2020年IFD了……
