IU Bazaar presents international cultural treat

18th April, 2016

KOTA KINABALU: Visitors to the International Understanding (IU) Bazaar yesterday were treated to a display of eight international cultures put up by eight schools at the IMAGO Shopping Mall’s Central Atrium.

The event organised by the Rotary Club Kota Kinabalu (RCKK) aims to promote understanding of foreign countries and cultures while enabling the students to immerse themselves in the culture of the chosen country.

“We believe the event will foster international understanding and promote the spirit of goodwill among the students while being exposed to and gaining knowledge during the preparation of their performance.

“Through this event, students will be able to mingle with counterparts from other schools to create bonds and foster unity as well as learn how to manage a task and an event of this kind,” said the president of the RCKK, Jack Ong when launching the event that also saw participation by the Interact Club.

He also commended the youngsters for their creativity and for being able to interpret the nation chosen, which took months to prepare and coordinate.

SM All Saint represented the Philippines, SM La Salle for Grenada, Sabah College for France, SM Lok Yuk for Kiribati and SMK St Francis Convent for South Africa under the guidance of the Interact Club.

There were three invited schools which were SM Shan Tao which represented Japan, SMK Perempuan Likas for Germany and SM Stella Maris for the United States of America.

The cultures and background of each country were showcased through traditional costume shows, cultural dance performances as well as a food bazaar. – By Noor Eviana Datu Mazinal
