AISZ Visits Spain

Every year the AISZ community travels to a new country to experience and enjoy learning about its people, history and traditions.

This year, AISZ went to Spain in March for Passport Day.

AISZ Spanish families and friends decorated walls with posters donated from the Spanish Embassy. A Spanish video gave students an overview of Spain. Students wore Spanish colors, and Spanish flags were painted on their faces. Students made a Spanish flower called El clavel, and Spanish fans which, as they learned, have a language all their own.

They played a Spanish game called El Parchis, and tasted a Spanish treat. Prizes were given to students who entered their Spanish crossword in a drawing.  The cafeteria even prepared a Spanish lunch. To top all of that off, our special guest, professional Flamenco dancer Mitja Obed, performed a traditional dance and taught our students some dance steps.

All in all, it was a fabulous day in Spain planned and sponsored by our Spanish families and the World Family Committee.
