Fun for all at ISF
On Saturday June 4th our annual Sommerfest took place.
With 14 countries selling traditional food, visitors were able to sample culinary delicacies from around the world. We had traditional favourites such as Döner kebab from Turkey, sushi from Japan and coffee and cakes from Germany. It was nice to see so many parents in traditional costume. Some of the stands such as Mexico, the UK and the USA were organised by one single family who put in a tremendous effort on the day.
The day began with our annual Science Fair and, new this year a Robotics Competition and demonstration. The Science fair was won by Joel G. with his project "The Astronomical Washing Machine" (an investigation of centrifugal force).
The PE Department and ISF Sportverein organised sporting activities including an obstacle course for the younger children, and various soccer matches.
The Obstacle Course took place from 12:30 to 14:30. The children got the opportunity to move, jump, climb, walk and crawl across several obstacles such as balance beam, a trampoline and a rope ladder. As an award after finishing the course the kids were delighted with small gifts sponsored by the Sportsverein and ISF.
The theatre programme started off with the string orchestra performing classical and comtemporary pieces, accompanied by ISF teachers Ms. Ho, Mr. Williams and Mr. Gossard along with our very talented strings teacher, Ms Atanassova.
The Orchestra consisted of ISF students, faculty, and guest musicians. This eclectic program included songs such as Smooth Criminal, Beethoven’s Virus, Tico Tico, and Bills featuring the wonderful vocal styling of Mr. May.
The Talent Show proved again to be very popular with many talented singers and dancers from Grades 4 to 10. The winner was Jae K., who choreographed his own dance. Archee B. came in second with her Bollywood dance. Eleanor S. and Amy P. came in third with “I know what you did last summer”.
Following the Talent Show we were treated to wonderful dance performances featuring ballet, Korean dance and Indian traditional Dance.
Many families bought raffle tickets for the Kenya Project tombola and we managed to raise over €800 for our Kenya Project. Gustavo P. from Grade 8 won the top tombola prize of two Lufthansa tickets for flights within Europe. Many other students won prizes provided by our other sponsors.
We would like to thank everyone who supported us at Sommerfest.
