Each year, the school, staff, parents and children of Chartwell International School come together to celebrate a special holiday: United Nations Day.
We celebrate United Nations Day as a way to introduce our students and families to the many cultures that make up our school community.
In the days and weeks leading up to United Nations Day, the children participate in a variety of age-appropriate activities. All children combine their learning about United Nations Day with a September “All About Me” and “My Family” theme. Children learn that flags represent countries and that each child has a flag or flags that represent where his/her family came from.
The teachers will expose children to books and activities promoting tolerance of differences, teaching the children that we are “all different, but all the same.”
