fon2009-sticker1fon2009-sticker2

The American School of Bombay’s annual Festival of Nations celebration took place today, 2nd April 2009, with children from 50 different countries parading on stage with music, flags and clothing from around the world. Many country representatives displayed their colors and heritage with a vision of “oneness, acceptance, inclusion and harmony”, no matter who they are or where they come from.This ceremony was enhanced with performances from 6 different countries and Malaysia was no exception! Our children performed their Malay dance so gracefully with rounds of applause from the audiences! It was no doubt a spirit of ‘Malaysia Boleh’!!!

Hats off to our children for a great performance! They had been practicing very hard for the past one month. BRAVO kids! BRAVO!

Thank you to Julia Idaly and Nur Fadzlin for choreographing the dance. And to the kids from Ecole Mondiale World School & German International School, THANK YOU for your utmost support. To all moms who had in one way or another helped to make this a success, a BIG THANK YOU!!! Malaysia Boleh!!! Click here for more photos or push ‘PLAY’ to view the video.
