International School of Busan (ISB) (formerly known as Busan International Foreign School) will be hosting International Day, on Saturday, 27 April 2019, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
This event is open to all members of the public and will be held at the school compound located in Gijang, Busan.
International Day is a time-honored annual tradition for the school, which recently celebrated its 35th anniversary in Busan. This year’s program promises to be both educational and entertaining for all ages.
Festivities will commence with a “Parade of Nations”, where students and visitors alike may march under their respective country’s flag in a colorful display of national pride. A showcase of traditional costumes at a Fashion Show and live entertainment in the form of cultural dance and performances will be provided.
At noon, 26 Country Booths will be available for participants to tour. Visitors may purchase a passport that will enable them to participate in the various activities held at each Country Booth, as they “travel the world in one day’, as the tagline for this event goes. Ice-cream prizes will be available to all participants who successfully complete activities at each Country Booth. Tickets to purchase food and drinks for International Day will be sold on-site.
Whether by delighting our taste buds or heightening our senses, this event seeks to deepen our understanding and respect for the diversity of cultures found within our community in Busan. We would like to extend a warm invitation for you to join us in our celebration of International Day 2019.
