International Day at ISZL

Last weekend we had the privilege to attend International Day at Coretta´s school. The students of the International School of Zug look forward to this all year.

They have international booths set up that offer native cuisine, drink, and dessert as well as several games and entertainment. This year there was food from Australia, Germany, Scandinavia, France, Switzerland, United States, Canada, Great Britian, and Mexico. Some of the games were the riding bull, the rock climbing wall, the carousel, as well as games like blowing a balloon up and exploding it to other relay races. They also highlighted several middle school rock bands playing covers from bands like Sound Garden and the Rolling Stones. They also had several traditional dances and the dancers from the school play Bugsy performed as well.

We went to the festival with the Burkert´s and Bargers taking public transportation the whole way. It was a clear sunny day. The only bad part of the day was that I saw several horse balloons in the air that had left the hands of some very sad kids. We arrived around 11.00 am and stayed until 3.00 pm.

It was a great time especially for the children. Here are some more photos from the day. Just click on the following link: ISZL photos
