UNITED NATIONS & WORLD CHILDREN’S DAY CELEBRATION 2023



12 October 2023



Dear Parents and Guardians,



Greetings of solidarity!


We would like to inform you of an important update regarding our school's United Nations Day Celebration, which has been a long standing tradition at Studentdesk Integrated Montessori School.


This year, we are excited to announce that the United Nations Day Celebration will take place on November 29, 2023 (Wednesday), and it will be a joint celebration with World Children's Day. We believe that this dual celebration will provide a unique and meaningful experience for our students, allowing them to connect the global ideals of the United Nations with the aspirations of the world's children.


In the lead-up to this special day, we have planned a series of on-campus activities designed to educate students about the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). These activities will help our students better understand the global challenges that we are facing and the importance of working together to address them.


We encourage you to take an active interest in your child's participation in these activities and discussions. Please review the schedule of activities related to the event and take note of the items that need your actions.
