The last day of T2; 12pm dismissal
MS EVENT ONLY (US students have Career Connections this day)
Cary Academy's annual event in the spirit of Ubuntu (a South African proverb meaning "I am because you are, you are because I am") exposes students to various cultures and perspectives through performances, an International Café featuring cuisine representative of Cary Academy's diverse population, and interactive workshops, presentations, and discussions. Its goal is to promote cultural awareness and appreciation, to demonstrate the importance and relevance of learning other languages and cultures, and to explore global community interdependence.
Three Ways To Get Involved
The Ubuntu Celebration Planning Committee invites you to participate in this opportunity to share cultural and social perspectives, experiences, or talents with our students. It is through your involvement that the Celebration is a success!
Present a MS Workshop
Please consider presenting a workshop to Middle School students. Interactive workshops work well, and we welcome presentations that explore different countries, cultures, or more specific topics (henna art, Italian folk dance, or the significance of tea). We also offer workshops around the different core identifiers. Click on the link below to see previous workshops.
