Just before the recent school break, Elementary students at TCIS celebrated the Korean Chuseok holiday.
Students, teachers, and parent visitors engaged in a number of fun traditional activities. From songpyeon making to a variety of crafts, games, snacks, and a final event of dansimjulnoli, it was a time full of laughter and wonder.
This Chuseok celebration is a traditional occurrence at TCIS, as it presents an opportunity to remember and give thanks together, focusing on family and community, and all the ways that we have been blessed.
It is also an opportunity to celebrate the traditions of this wonderful country that hosts our school. We feel blessed to be a part of the land of Korea, playing a role in international education. Many of our families are visitors to this great country and are eager to experience the culture here.
Many of our children have significant ties to Korea, and such events allow us to help them better understand themselves in a Korean context. Alongside this, the international faculty, curriculum, and format allow us to help them understand themselves as Koreans, confidently living in a global society, and representing the best of Korea to the world.
