4月6日，上海金山區楓葉學校在體育館二樓舉辦盛大的Cultural Fair文化節，高中部所有年級同學進行了精心的準備和布展。Cultural Fair文化節和每學年第一學期舉辦的Science Fair科學展是楓葉世界學校課程兩個重要的學術展覽。
With the arrival of spring, students of Maple Leaf School Shanghai Jinshan District held a series of cultural activities on April 6th, organized by English Department teachers.
The fair is an activity for English students in Grade one and grade three. It aims to show the charm of different cultures, from customs, traditional food, festivals, music, art and so on. It provides students with an opportunity to learn about different cultures, broaden their horizons, and prepare for future study abroad.
In the run-up to the fair, groups that choose different countries usually use A1 size posters to show the culture of their chosen country. Through drawing, writing and pasting, the charm of national culture is displayed on exquisite posters.
Participants are given a passport, which requires them to choose from 77 countries and invite the person in charge to sign their name on the passport. At the fair, we could taste local dishes and food prepared by various groups. Accompanied by the rhythm of distinctive music, students were immersed in the atmosphere of cultural exchange.No matter which country the teachers and students went to, the people in the national booth always treated them warmly. They used games, questions and answers to let the participants feel the local customs of the country.
During the fair, teachers and students took an active part in expressing their opinions. This activity is an effective supplement to students' understanding of unknown countries, but also gives students a chance to explore the country they are interested in. While promoting cultural exchange, it can also bring students closer to each other and help students blend ideas.
Cultural fair is a meaningful activity that contributes to the development of campus culture and the overall cultivation of students. It helps us to understand the reasons why people from different cultural backgrounds develop different behaviors. We are looking forward to the next cultural Fair!
