The 14th of December was a red letter day for all the students at Ryan International School, Vasant Kunj as we had the privilege to host all the visiting foreign delegates from Germany , Iran, Thailand and Paraguay who are here to participate in the 16th International Theatre Festival where more than 15,000 students are performing. The School was bedecked in festival finery as it encompassed the rich cultural Heritage of India with a generous dose of the Ryan ethos. The school band along with the beat of the ‘Dhol’ filled the air as our guests were ushered into the school gate which was lined with children in local costumes waving flags from various visiting countries. They were then seated in the amphitheatre where the school choir received them with the internationally popular song "‘We are the World"’. After the assembly the contingent was escorted to various classes where colorful exhibitions of various states were organised. The day ended with a basketball match between the host and the guest team followed by a hearty lunch. It was truly a day of celebration.
