An IB World School

International Day Feb 21st


Have you heard about International Day - a day where Bennett celebrates diversity by learning about different cultures and places? On the morning of Friday, February 21, Bennett classrooms will be converted into countries. After an assembly, the children travel to various parts of the world and experience presentations from International Day Volunteers.

Are you from another country or have you spent significant time abroad? Are you willing to give a presentation? Our volunteers set up in their assigned classrooms and present on their country for 20 minutes with an extra 5 minutes for questions. Therefore, you would be giving your presentation 4 times to 4 different classes (they could range from kindergartners to 5th graders - but we will let you know ahead of time the ages of kids who will be attending your sessions).

You would need to check-in to Bennett by 8:15 on Feb. 21. The last session is over at 11:30am, but we hope that you are able to join us after for a "thank you" international luncheon where you can meet the other presenters.

If you are indeed able to be a presenter on International Day - please email our International Day Coordinator Lisa Verbsky. Lisa will then send you a list of ideas for your presentation.

Thank you, International Day Committee Lisa Verbsky, Shelby Sack, Teri McNamee, Michele Yebra
