Inspiring International Day Celebration at B.D. Somani

International Day at B.D Somani is a grade 11 student-led event involving the whole school community including grades 6 to 11 students, Student Councils, House Councils, our ground staff, some of the NGOs our school is linked to, parents, and Primary student council members.
This year, we celebrated the 10th anniversary of International Day on Thursday 13th April 2023. The grade 11 students under the guidance of their language teachers planned exciting activities on the theme of Ethics.
Students explored this theme through activities such as skits, World language quizzes, foreign and Indian language lessons including, for the first time, sign language, speeches such as’TED TALKS’ in French and Spanish, World Languages TOK workshops, and Movie workshops in different languages.
Our day ended with the Middle School ‘FIFA’ matches, our Annual BD vs OSCAR, and Gr12 vs BD teachers’ matches.
During the football matches, Junior and Senior Student councils raised funds through bake sales and games whilst members from Hamari Silai, Vatsalya, and Oscar had their own stalls selling beautiful handmade products.
Our grade 11 students’ reflections summarize this event: they felt that the day helped them develop their leadership skills, think differently taking into account multiple cultures and perspectives, and above all inspire their juniors.
