BRIARCLIFF, N.Y. -- Briarcliff Middle School students were immersed in cultures from around the world during the school’s International Day.
Workshops and stations were set up throughout the school, giving students the chance to learn about different countries while participating in activities. The day began for many students with a tae-kwon-do demonstration in the Little Theater by United Martial Arts Center Master Chris Berlow, who spoke with students about the values of respect, integrity and self-control.
Other activities included a churros and chocolate tasting in the cafeteria, cultural workshops hosted by students in classrooms and a student performance. One student brought in empanadas for his classmates to taste, while high school Spanish Club members taught their middle school peers how to create an Eye of God.
French students shared their knowledge of making crepes, while a high school student taught participants the basics of classical Indian dance. The day concluded with a students versus faculty basketball game to benefit charity: water.
