ISPS International Day - Friday October 29, 2021

International Day reminds us about who we are as a diverse community, and to think about the contributions that we can make in our homes, communities, and globally. This year, we will be hosting International Day online on Friday, October 29th. 

This celebration is in honor of the UN designated United Nations Day, which is celebrated globally on October 24th.

As always at our international events we welcome the opportunity to honor the diversity of our community with special events that highlight the work of the United Nations. Over the last few years we have been highlighting several of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG), otherwise known as the Global Goals. These are a universal call to action to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity.

This year we are focusing on the declared International Year of Peace and Trust (IYPT) by the United Nations.

Friday, October 29th,  will be a special day at our school. There will be classes, town halls, and activities planned for our students - all centered around the theme of the day.

The culminating event will be the Virtual Parade of Nations Assembly, and a link will be sent so that all of our ISPS families can join. A full agenda for this will also follow.

So mark your calendars, plan the photos, and join us for an online celebration that highlights our internationalism, a core characteristic of our ISPS Community!

Please look out for more details in the next few weeks.

 

Peace is our most precious value and the essence of our work.  All that we strive for as a human family depends on peace.  But peace depends on us.

Secretary-General of the United Nations
