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.
