Celebrate Lunar New Year at Network
Celebrating different cultures at school is an important way to foster diversity, inclusivity, and respect for the different backgrounds and beliefs of Network community. By embracing different cultures, students can learn about the unique traditions, customs, and perspectives of others, and gain a deeper understanding of the world around them.
As Lunar New Year 2023 is approaching, our school hosted amazing and lively Lion Dances on EYFS, Primary and Secondary campuses to give students the opportunity to learn about different cultures and how people around the world celebrate their new year.
Students had a great time seeing and touching the Lion and getting presents from the Lions for luck. The whole school was filled with joy and a new year's spirit.
This event was a meaningful way to honour the cultural heritage of students and families among our community as well as create a diverse and inclusive learning environment. By participating in this celebration, students learn how to appreciate and respect the differences between individuals and cultures, and gain a broader understanding of the world they live in.
The Thingyan festival is one of the most anticipated events of the year at Network International School Yangon. In the last week of Term 3, Thingyan Festival was held across the whole school, giving students the opportunity to learn about and bond with Myanmar culture and traditions while having fun.
Book Week at Network International School Yangon was an exciting event that took place from February 27th to March 3rd. Students from the Early Years to Sixth Form were immersed in a world of literary adventures, participating in various engaging activities that celebrated the joy of reading and ignited their imaginations.
We are absolutely delighted that from the next academic year Network International School Yangon will be the first school in Myanmar to offer Pearson Edexcel's Extended Project Qualification (EPQ).
Next week from 27 February, students across the whole school from Early Year to Sixth Form will take part in fun activities during Book Week; from parent read, book fair, book parade, literature scavenger hunts to exciting and fun competitions such as an ‘unusual reading places’ photo competitions, spelling bee, writing short stories, poems and ‘Legends on Film’ and many more.
