In Celebration of International Friendship DayLatest News

The greatest gift of life is friendship and on 5 July, students at MDIS celebrated International Friendship Day with workshops and activities, games and food galore.

Students, staff and the public dived into the cultures of Southeast Asia and beyond at the activity booths, workshops and food bazaar set up around campus. Participants got to enjoy traditional games like Indonesia's Congak and Singapore's Five Stones, and sample signature dishes like Vietnamese rice paper rolls, Korean kimchi and more. They also had the chance to try their hand at making Ketupat, a traditional Indonesian/Malaysian dumpling, and Friendship bracelets to commemorate the occasion.

To capture memories of the day, a photo booth was made available to participants who got to dress up in traditional costumes like the Korean Hanbok and Japanese Kimono for a fun-filled photo opportunity. 

MDIS seeks to create a vibrant global student community on campus. This event is one in a series that encourages students to make friends across different backgrounds and cultures, promoting fellowship among schoolmates.
