Ubuntu Celebration

Friday, February 23, 2018

The last day of T2; 12pm dismissal

MS and US event this year!

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.

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 our Ubuntu Celebration is a success!

If you have any questions or need more information, please contact
Sara Mizelle or Jason Franklin


Present a MS or US Workshop

Please consider presenting a workshop to Middle or Upper School students. Interactive workshops work well, and we welcome presentations that explore different countries, cultures, cultural identifiers, or more focused topics (henna art, Italian folk dance, or the significance of tea). We also offer workshops around the different core identifiers. Click on the appropriate link below to see previous workshops.
