International Family Food Fair 2018

The International Family Food Fair (IFFF) is a fantastic celebration of diversity and an event which delights everyone in the family. On Saturday March 3rd, our school will be transformed into an international cuisine extravaganza, a performance and dance centre, a fun- filled games arcade and a prize draw. We are seeking assistance in the following areas: - Cuisine and Food Hall. We need parents to help coordinate the day. Particularly, we need volunteers to reach out to parents to provide their tasty national dishes. We are seeking parents and staff volunteers from as many nationalities as possible. - Prize Draw: Last year the prize draw was hugely popular and well supported by businesses from all over Doha. We are actively searching for prize donations from interested companies who would like to be our partners in this event. If you would like to donate a prize from your company or business, please let us know. - Performances. Do you know of performers from your home country, living here in Doha, who would volunteer to come perform on March 3rd? Does your family have a traditional dance or music you would like to share? We are looking for performers who will delight the ISL Qatar community. - Games. Students lead the coordination of the games and activities on the day. If you have an arcade type game you enjoyed as a child to share, we would like to hear from you. Parents are encouraged to help their children lead a game or activity. The success of the event comes down to support from parents, students, staff and company sponsors. We would like to invite you next week to attend 2 sessions to brainstorm on how to be this annual event a huge success. - Tuesday 16th January at 7:15 AM ? All Parents (Location: D Room) - Wednesday 17th January at 2.15 PM ?
