KATZIR SCHOOL Israel  WORLD FESTIVAL

Friends and Flags first began in Katzir School in Israel in 1999. That first year, our school was involved in  4 Friends and Flags circles. Students in grades 6-9 worked together to make  20 cultural  packages with plenty  of information about ourselves, our school, community and Israel.  We sent these packages to our partners, but before we did, we invited  our parents to a special display of our  hard work!!  

Then during the year we  also received   20 wonderful packages from many countries around the world. At the end of the year we had a great Friends and Flags Festival. The whole school was involved and parents and members of the community were invited as guests for the event. We spent several days preparing our displays and learning information  about our international partners in order to be able to present them .

 

The  big day began with all presenters ( grades 6-9) receiving Katzir School Friends and Flags T-shirts. All younger students in Grades 1-5, received tourist passports and colored the  national flags in the passports according to colored flag keys, which were placed around the school yard.

 

Then the students moved from country exhibit to exhibit, listening to short lectures by students in grades 6-9.

The learners listened to the presenters and waited patiently to get their passports stamped.

Friends and Flags members  around the globe  have the wonderful opportunity to make multi-cultural learning centers,   exhibits and  presentations of the authentic items they receive from their international country partners.
