St. Catherine of Siena School, in Kennesaw, had its first International Night on Feb. 27.
More than 300 people attended the celebration where 17 countries were represented, each with their own unique booth, said Rachel Cowan, a Spanish teacher at the school.
Children received personal passports that were stamped after visiting each of the countries. Highlights of the night were Irish dancers from the Mulligan School of Dance, a “chopstick challenge” in which students learned to use chopsticks and move items from one place to another, and a wide variety of authentic and delicious foods. Many students dressed in traditional garb from countries such as Mexico, India, Ecuador, Nigeria and Chile.
