Drumheller Valley Secondary School hosted their annual International Day celebrations on Friday, March 22. The event showcases the many different countries represented by International Students in the school.

The day started off with a fashion show and different performances performed by the students themselves. Jarlene Mange produced the show and was overall pleased with jarlenemangeProducer, Jarlene Mangethe performances.

"It was a lot of hard work, especially when people don't listen to you, but it worked out in the end because it all paid off!" exclaimed Mange.

Over 10 countries were represented in the whole presentation. After the fashion show, students sang, danced and karate-chopped their way to vigorous applause from the audience.

The finale grouped students from all around the world together in a dance performance to show unity and diversity.

"Honestly, my favourite part of the whole thing was hanging out with my dance crew the whole time. I was able to just connect with them and get close with them," continued Mange who also performed in the finale.

The point of the whole day was to celebrate the diversity of the school, and the impact that international education can have for students across the world.

"I really think it is so important because the theme of this whole show is acceptance and that is what we were trying to show people that it is about this, it is about coming together and diversity," concluded Mange.
