KOTA KINABALU: Kinabalu In­ter­na­tional School hosted its most pop­u­lar event of the year, In­ter­na­tional Day on Oct 6.

Or­gan­ised by the Par­ent-Teacher As­so­ci­a­tion (PTA), In­ter­na­tional Day is a whole school cel­e­bra­tion of the mul­ti­cul­tural com­mu­nity that ex­ists at KIS.

Stu­dents, par­ents and staff from the school’s 33 na­tions came to school wear­ing the na­tional dress of their coun­try and had the op­por­tu­nity to share their cul­ture, mu­sic and food.

The day started with an In­ter­na­tional Pa­rade, and was fol­lowed by in­ter­na­tional themed lessons, par­ent-run food stalls, and a num­ber of ex­cit­ing ac­tiv­i­ties for stu­dents to en­joy man­aged by the school’s Stu­dent Coun­cil and cul­mi­nated in a lucky draw.

The prin­ci­pal, Alan Con­nah, ex­plained “Our In­ter­na­tional Day pro­vides a won­der­ful op­por­tu­nity to bring to­gether our di­verse com­mu­nity from over 33 na­tions. At KIS we pride our­selves on our fam­ily friendly com­mu­nity. The hard work and in­clu­sive spirit of our par­ents, stu­dents and staff re­sulted in a day that was thor­oughly en­joyed by all.”
