An International Day event will form part of the 10th anniversary celebrations of the International School of Walvis Bay (ISWB) at the Jan Wilken Stadium in Walvis Bay on 29 June.

One of the organisers, Luischen Sirakis, says the school intends to go big this year with the planned event. The festivities include various stalls, catering for a wide variety of cuisine, arts, craft displays, and a talent show.

“We’re getting the entire school involved to set up stalls depicting various countries and its native cultures. There will be twelve stalls ranging from the United States of America, Mexico, Germany, England, Cape Town, India, Greece, Namibia, Italy, Portugal and Brazil. Each stall will have a different menu ranging from American corn dogs, a German bistro, an English High Tea, a Mexican taco bar, Cape Townian rotis as well the traditional food of the Oshiwambo and the Damara/Nama.”

A volleyball tournament will also be hosted and everyone is more than welcome to join the tournament with fun prizes to be won for the winning teams.

For the parents, a drink or two can be enjoyed in the beer tent while the little ones enjoy a variety of jumping castles and participate in a number of fun activities such a drawing and colouring pictures.

The ISWB will also host a talent show with Peter van Ginkel supplying the music for the day.

Nissan Pupkewitz will also showcase some of their latest cars at the festivities.

“To top off our celebrations, we’ll be giving away N$10 000 to a lucky winner during our Global Dollar Rush raffle draw. This raffle draw comes with a twist. You buy a flag of N$50 and plant it on the field at the stadium. The coordinates of the flag are then placed in a bucket which will determine the winner,” explained Sirakus.

Many people visited and supported the previous event with “Celebrating cultures represented at the school” as theme. Approximately N$130 000 was raised for the school on this occasion.

The ISWB is a non-profit facilitator school which accommodates 410 learners and 37 teachers. The school solely relies on the financial commitment of the students’ parents.
