Camden Catholic's First Annual International Festival
With the theme of “Creating Unity through Diversity,” Camden Catholic High School’s first annual International Festival on Friday, February 20 from 7 to 9 PM will celebrate the cultures of a variety of countries from around the globe, including those of the many foreign students who are currently enrolled at the Cherry Hill high school. At present, nearly every continent is represented in the student body, by students from other countries.
When visitors first arrive at the International Festival – which is open to the public – they will be presented with a passport to take during their tour. At each station, the passport will be documented with a message in the native language of that country. Travelers will have the opportunity to taste ethnic foods, view art, hear music, and experience the cultural celebrations of countries which include Ecuador, Peru, Korea, England, Germany, India, and Ireland. The continents of Africa, Australia, and the region of the Middle East will also be represented at the event to be held in the school’s cafeteria.
The Festival is being undertaken by Camden Catholic’s International Club, which is made up of visiting foreign students who are looking to foster friendships with each other, to share advice on their individual experiences, and to get additional information on school activities, as well as local students interested in learning about diverse cultures.
