International Day at E.I.S.

The English International School is blessed with over 30 nationalities. Even though we come from different parts of the world and have different cultures, we still have a lot in common.

Maya Angelou, a great American poetess said, “It is time for parents to teach young people early on that in diversity there is beauty and there is strength.” I believe that by sending your children here, your objective is to achieve exactly that.

I feel blessed to have been sent to an international school, and will be forever grateful to my parents for sending me here. I have made friends with children from various cultures and it has made me a better person.  I understand the true meaning of tolerance because I have learnt to accept that other people have the right to believe in what they want eat what and how they want and basically live as they want.  I know that many of my friends share this same sentiment of gratitude.  We are indeed true citizens of the world.  If everyone thought, felt and lived by these principles, the world would be a better place for all of us and our generations to come.
