International Fair at the FIS
June 21 to 25, 2021
And it’s a wrap on the FIS Virtual International Fair 2021!
We would like to thank all the contributors who shared so many videos showcasing their culture, and the viewers who visited the website daily, engaged with the content and supported the event.
Every year we come together as a FIS community and celebrate the rich, cultural diversity at our school. Due to COVID restrictions this year, we had to get creative and celebrate our rich diversity virtually.
Enjoy partaking in the virtual celebration!
