International Day and Sundowner are two hallmark events held annually at the Western International School of Shanghai. These events seek to inspire international mindedness and celebrate our diverse and multicultural community that makes WISS unique.With over 50 nationalities represented as part of the WISS Community, we are truly the most international school in Shanghai.
During these events, students, parents, teachers, and special guests come together to showcase their cultures through various performances, displays, and activities.
International Day typically begins with a parade of flags, where students proudly display the flags of their home countries. This is followed by a series of cultural performances, including dances, songs, and skits that highlight the diversity of our community.
In addition to the performances, International Day features a variety of cultural booths where visitors can learn more about different regions and countries around the world. Guests can sample food, try on traditional clothing, and participate in crafts and games from different cultures.
International Day is a wonderful opportunity for our community to unite and celebrate our differences while finding common ground. It promotes cultural understanding and respect and helps our students develop a global perspective that will serve them well as they move forward in life.
Sundowner at WISS is an excellent opportunity for students, parents, and faculty to come together and celebrate the year's accomplishments while enjoying food, drinks, and entertainment. The atmosphere is relaxed and festive, and it's always a fun time.
