On Saturday, October 18, Harrow International School celebrated their annual autumn fair, bringing in over 2,000 attendees for the day’s festivities. Organized by a committee of Friends of Harrow, (similar to PTA in other schools) the autumn fair saw an unprecedented turnout of over 2,000 attendees. More than 200 volunteered for the event, many acting as food vendors. Korean, Indian, Chinese, and Thai food were among the international food options available.
For younger kids, games and activities on offer included bouncy castles, a treasure hunt, an obstacle course, and more. Scottish dances were performed by the Caledonian Society and student artists sketched the crowd. Students took the stage to show off their skills with a theater workshop as well as musical performances by the school choir, ballet performances, and a unique steel pan performance. Similar to the steel drum, steel pan falls into the idiophone family of instruments.
Raffle prizes ranged from iPhone 6s, resort stays, and spa treatments, all of which were donated by businesses associated with the Harrow community.
