On the 9 March, the whole RGSG Qatar school community came together to celebrate International Day 2023. It was a wonderful celebration and an accumulation of a week’s learning about the many different countries that make up the world in which we live. Pupils enjoyed learning about different cultures and nationalities. We are proud of the diverse community are staff and pupils are able to enjoy at The Royal Grammar School, Guildford in Qatar.
All came dressed to school in a variety of national costumes and pupils enjoyed a colourful ‘around the world’ assembly of dance and singing. Pupils described their home countries and provided us with some interesting information about countries as varied as Egypt, Italy, Australia, Qatar and England.
Lunch was an exciting International Day feast with food from all over the world. Each table was decorated with flags and artefacts from the various countries represented.
During International Day visited themed classrooms to explore Mexico, USA, France and Japan and collect passport stamps in their RGS passports. There was so much energy in every classroom and a wonderful, broad range of learning opportunities.
