CKSC IB Celebrates International Week
In celebration of the International Week, the International Baccalaureate community of Chiang Kai Shek College engaged in a whole day of learning, fun, and activities.
With the theme, “Using social influence to create global connections” the event was spearheaded by Ms. Lyra Felix, Mr. Vin Frago and the IB DO Head, Mr. Ian Mark Arevalo. Furthermore, it was guided by the statement of inquiry, “Global Interactions can create a hopeful future.”
Various influencers in different fields graced the celebration with their pre-recorded talks which students listened to during their morning workshop. Among the speakers were: Mr. Gilbert Que, Ateneo professor, culture, language and travel enthusiast based in the Philippines; Mr. Laurenz Ding, fitness and business influencer based in the Philippines; Ms. Mimi Wang, writer, journalist, video creator, and moderator of Netease based in Japan; Hookhuuk Gaming, gaming video content creator based in Thailand; Richard David of Papa Rodeo, console gaming content creator, MH Rise world record holder based in the Philippines; and Ms. Natalie Fay, make up artist and hair stylist, entrepreneur, and social media influencer based in South Africa.
One of the event’s highlights was the Windows of the World where MYP and DP students showcased their assigned continents through classroom decorations, performances, cultural appreciation videos, foods, and giveaways. Grade 7 students presented the continent of Asia, Grade 8 students for Europe, Grade 9 for Oceania, Grade 10 for South Africa, Grade 11 for South America, and Grade 12 for North America.
Following this was an extemporaneous speaking competition led by the Model United Nations Club headed by Ms. Sara Cabatuan. Discussing the topic on disinformation through a 5-minute speech, Beatrice Chicano (11-PDLV) emerged as the champion, Krizelle San Agustin (8VE) came in second, and Deanne Go (12AP) won 3rd place.
Finally was a showcase of the world’s national costumes entitled, the “World Wide Wear” led by Mr. Jommel Limbaga. Students’ interpretation of their costumes, stage presence, and their delivery and explanation of their chosen country to represent proved their creativity and international mindedness. Tonichi Yasay and Carlos Ong of 12AP were held champions of the WWW as they presented their traditional Mexican costumes during the celebration of the Día de Muertos or the Day of the Dead. Kisrten Leigh Ah and Sherdon Co of 8VE grabbed second place as they represented the United Kingdom’s queen and armored soldier attire, and Nathan Laborada and Keira Layog won third place as they modeled the casual daily wear of South American citizens.
The event was deemed a great success. The IB family greets everyone a happy International Week celebration!
