Our School Spirit Lasts An Eternity

Hundreds Gather at SCA’s 3rd Annual International Festival

 

Over 500 children and adults traveled the globe at Summit Christian Academy’s (SCA) third annual International Festival.

The night opened with a parade of flags and costumes from countries including South Korea, China, Peru, Brazil, Uganda, Spain, and more. Participants had the opportunity to be part of the Chinese tea ceremony, and observe live entertainment performances from Peruvian Folk dancers and percussion and dance from the Soundz of Africa. Finally, throughout the night attendees traveled the continents at their leisure while experiencing music, art, games, and cuisine from over 30 countries around the world.

“SCA believes that it is important to build knowledge and understanding of cultures around the world and to equip our students to be global citizens,” said SCA International Program Director Kathy Tharp. “It is wonderful to bring the culture, tastes, and sounds of other countries to Lee’s Summit for our community to experience. This was an enlightening and fun event for families.”
