International Day 2023
International Week, an annual week-long event that honors and celebrates the diversity of nationalities and cultures represented at GIS, was held in February. This year, International Week kicked off with an assembly where staff, students, and parents came to showcase the cultures of different countries through presentations and performances. The week ended with an international parade in which representatives from each of our twenty-plus countries dressed up in traditional outfits and proudly waved their flag as they paraded around the school. Staff and the rest of the study body were also encouraged to wear national costumes.
Of course, how can you celebrate diversity without food? Every day, our GIS parents set up booths in the cafeteria to hand out traditional snacks from various countries! Our kitchen staff even went out of their way to cook up special menus to go along with the treats! It was certainly a delicious week for everyone.

After graduating from GIS, Sungmin Kim (Class of 2014) went on to receive a double major in Psychology and Christian Management in Education at Handong Global University where he is now working as the Exchange Program Manager. This past January, he came to visit GIS as a representative of Handong Global University to talk to students about the opportunities and scholarships that are available there, especially for international students. He loves his job as he is able to travel to different places to make new connections and open up new doors for students. During his time back at GIS, Sungmin reflected on the impact that GIS has on his life.. “GIS really left a mark on my life. Other than equipping me to do well in university, the teachers serving here were a great example of how I should live my life and I found myself doing a lot of what they did.”
