International Day at TISA

International day is one of my favourite days of the school calendar. As Katrine and Gregor are 2/8 Welsh (my father) and 3/8 English and 3/8 Scottish (Richard had one English grandparent so isn’t fully Scottish) they can choose what country they want to represent.

Katrine choose to go with the Union and Gregor wore his kilt paired with a Scottish rugby top (sorry Grandad he didn’t think the red of the Welsh top went properly).


There was an assembly at school with a flag procession and greetings from the students from every country represented, there are over 50 different nationalities at TISA.  Then there were performances from a few countries.  (My photos are a bit grainy as I was using my phone)

There was also a fantastic performance of traditional dancing, by 4 guys and 4 women, but they were moving so fast (especially the guys) that all the photos are blurry!

The assembly finished with the whole primary singing, I had to use the panorama setting to make everyone fit in!

It was a wonderful day and Katrine and Gregor came home telling all about the workshops they attended – Japanese puppets, making Welsh cakes, dancing the Gay Gordons, American 4th July celebration, Philippines “clap” dance….
