(CNS Local Life): Cayman International School (CIS) hosted its annual “International Night” on Wednesday, 15 February, in the Arts and Recreational Centre at Camana Bay, offering CIS families the opportunity to showcase the countries they represent. The school counts 32 nationalities amongst its faculty and student body. This year’s event was themed “The Five Senses” as each represented country aimed to give the crowd a true experience of its culture.

One of the main attractions of the event was the variety of food on offer, with each booth providing samples of its own local cuisine. Students, teachers and parents assisted in sharing information and offering visitors tastes of the food.

Members of the CIS steel pan band entertained as people visited the booths representing the various countries and regions. Apart from the usual décor and displays, the event included an African safari, a leprechaun and Lady Liberty photo booth; a Greek diner; and a green screen that placed people anywhere in the world they wanted to go.

Calling the event a success, CIS director Dr Jeremy Moore pointed to “lots of smiling faces having fun”. He added that the school approached the event with a “Kaizen mindset” to continually make improvements, “but I know everyone greatly enjoyed this year’s International Night experience”.

Earlier in the day, students and faculty came to school dressed to represent their countries. The elementary students put on an international assembly as each grade level presented dances and songs from countries all over the world.
