Our International Evening takes place on Wednesday, 23rd November from 18:00-21:00 in the Jubilee Hall. Families with children in Years 5 through to D2 are invited to attend and donate something tasty from their home country which would serve approximately 8-10 people. If you have decorations or memorabilia from your home country to put on display, that would also be gratefully received, and of course, returned. If you have a national costume, we would love you to wear it, even if it is just your national football team top! There is no cost to sample food this year; there will, however, be a donation box at the entrance that will be given to the Upper School Student Council's chosen charity.

If you are able to donate food or decorations for the event, we would be grateful if you could let us know what you will be providing and from which country, so that we can set up accordingly. If you would like us to connect you with families from your country, you can also indicate that on the form. Please click here to complete the form.
