How we wrapped up the year by embracing diversity and inclusion in our school community

As the school year draws to a close, it’s important to reflect on the values that make our educational community special. At One World International School Riyadh, we firmly believe in celebrating diversity and promoting inclusivity. This year, we wrapped up the academic journey by organizing an extraordinary event that showcased the vibrant cultures within our school. Our international day celebration brought students, parents, and stakeholders together for a joyous occasion filled with learning, performances, and appreciation for our diverse community.

The highlight of our end-of-year celebrations was our International Day Exhibition, an event that truly embodied the spirit of multiculturalism. Students were assigned different countries and formed groups to immerse themselves in researching and preparing engaging exhibitions. The halls of our school in Riyadh transformed into a bustling global village, where each group presented fascinating facts, cultural artefacts, and traditional costumes from their assigned country. Parents and other stakeholders were invited to witness the incredible displays, fostering a sense of connection and understanding among our diverse community. Melodies and rhythms from every corner were never forgotten. Music has the power to transcend language barriers and unite people from different backgrounds. Our students showcased their musical talents by performing songs, dances, and instrumental music from around the world. From the lively beats of Africa to the melodic tunes of Asia, our students transported the audience on a musical journey that celebrated the richness of global cultures. The performances not only entertained but also deepened our appreciation for the diverse talents within our school community.

At One World International School Riyadh, we take pride in our commitment to fostering diversity and inclusion.Our international school embraces students from various cultural backgrounds, recognizing the strength that comes from embracing different perspectives and experiences. By providing a nurturing environment that respects and values diversity, we aim to prepare our students to thrive in an interconnected and multicultural world. We firmly believe that when students learn alongside peers from different backgrounds, they develop empathy, respect, and a global mindset that will serve them well throughout their lives. 

Together, we continue to learn, grow, and celebrate the beauty of our differences, preparing our students to become global citizens who will shape a more inclusive future.

We believe in kindness!
