Weekends during our School days meant finishing homework or playing the whole day out with friends. Some weekends also meant there were the dreaded Parent-Teacher meets that often resulted in being the complaint sessions for notorious kids.
Gone are those days and PTAs now mean feedback sessions and learning sessions where the parents and teachers try and understand the psyche of the child to aid overall development.
One such international school, in the heart of the city, Stonehill International went a step ahead and brought in the concept of a PTA that not only had feedback sessions but also got the parents to make and sell food of their nationality to support a cause.
This International Food Fair saw delicacies from many regions of the world being savored by children and parents alike. The novelty of IFF lies in the diverse portfolio of students from across the world. One can look forward to relishing mouthfuls of homegrown goodness from countries such as Japan, South Korea, Denmark, USA, France, UK, Iran, Brazil, Sweden, India, Germany, Poland and Italy to name a few. So foodies can expect not just international flavors but also authentic regional flavors from these countries. As with Indian food, the flavor and ingredients of international food vary from region to region. Stonehill International School’s PTA event brings the most indigenous food preparations on a single platter at the pop-up cafes by parents of students belonging to varied nationalities. The food fair was open to all and the proceeds generated from the event are donated to charities.
As foodies, we decided to make a visit and try out some of the stalls. Pictures below:
