With students and families from over thirty countries, BIS recognizes the value of intercultural exchange and the many opportunities that diversity affords. Every year, we host a Multicultural Day, a gala event reflecting the many cultures, languages and traditions here at BIS. Food, music and dance are at the center of this annual tradition, and we invite the entire BIS community to participate in setting up country booths, cooking food, sharing cultural artifacts and supporting cultural performances.
As the world trends towards globalization, it is more important than ever to celebrate the rich array of cultural resources and practices. Culture represents a big part of what makes each of us unique, and we feel lucky to have students from all over the world, from Southeast and North Asia, the Indian Subcontinent, Africa, Europe and Central Eurasia and the Americas.
Multicultural Day is a chance for all of us to come together and share our unique heritages, traditions and cultural practices in an atmosphere of harmony and mutual support.
