International Day at Kings’ School Al Barsha

According to long-standing tradition, Rossiyanka participates in celebrating International Days, which take place in Dubai schools around January-March. International Day is a wonderful holiday, allowing school children from different countries to learn more about the culture and traditions of each other.

On March 16 the International Day was held at Kings’ School Al Barsha. From the very morning the school’s courtyard was filled with children and parents dressed in colorful national costumes. The participating countries thoroughly approached the preparation of the event and the guests of the holiday could not only admire the bright stands where objects of everyday life and various souvenirs were presented, but also taste the most famous dishes of national cuisine made by parents of schoolchildren. From different parts of the courtyard came the sounds of national melodies and one could see dancing children and adults.

This year, members of the Rossiyanka Community also took an active part in organizing the Russian stand. The Russian stand conveyed the wealth and generosity of our country not only in the form of numerous traditional household items – samovar, matryoshkas, Khokhloma… Our hospitable hostesses – Russian moms and members of Rossiyanka cooked the most delicious dishes of Russian cuisine – homemade pickles and salads, fresh pastries… Guests of the Russian (and there were a lot of them) were welcomed by real Russian beauties in bright sarafans and kokoshniks.

At the end of the holiday, guests enjoyed performances prepared by representatives of different countries. Songs and dances of all participating countries performed by young talents couldn’t leave spectators indifferent.
