Harvest Festival 2013

The American International School of Bucharest celebrates the season of the Harvest.


“Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today and creates a vision for tomorrow.” ~Melody Beattie

The American International School of Bucharest (AISB) educates over 800 students from 54 countries. On the hallways of AISB one can hear 30 languages
being spoken and teachers come from 13 countries to inspire children in their classes.
 

On Tuesday, November 26, representatives of the various nationalities that make up the school’s community gathered to express their thanks for the many gifts of nature, for their children and their good fortune, for their children’s educators and caretakers, for friends and family, for struggles and challenges overcome, in a way that has become tradition at AISB – The Harvest Festival.
 

“We welcome students from many countries at AISB and we are always happy to learn and be inspired by traditions of the di erent communities our students come from. The Harvest Festival brings to all parents, students and sta a feeling of plenitude, gratitude and the diversity of the AISB world. This year we are happy to have 30 nationalities participate in this wonderful event and enchant us all with traditional food from their countries,” says Catalina Gardescu, Manager of Admissions and External Relations.
 

As parents representing the various nationalities and nationality groups did their very best to prepare traditional meals, display them wonderfully and invite the entire community to enjoy them, students and sta were happy to take a culinary trip around the world. The Harvest Festival was a good time for all to stop for a moment and be thankful for all the good things they have been offered.
