The Day of the African Child

On Tuesday June 16th, we celebrated "The Day of the African Child," a holiday celebrated every year around here. (You can go here to read more about the history of this holiday.) The day was filled with color as all of the students and staff at OIS were encouraged to wear their African attire or clothing from their home country. We had a wonderful assembly with the whole school that contained music, dancing, poetry reading, and a great presentation from the "Face the Nation" group here visiting. Here are a few pictures from the day:
