Even though it was rather windy on October 22, the Autumn Fair at Harrow International School was still filled with enthusiasm.
In addition to various raffles with attractive gifts to give away, the fair included a Beijing Opera performance. Two young students put on an excellent performance with challenging martial arts body movements with both precision and fun.
On another front, the parents’ choir formed by a group of 24 moms appeared to be rather stunning in the midst of chilly wind. They showed up in elegant white dress with an image which would get no criticism even in a professional concert.
Harrow’s autumn fair naturally featured the school’s centuries old hat-wearing tradition. But as it is not a boys-only school here, the day’s highlight of hat show turned out to be a very colorful collection of different styles and materials. Hat-wearing heroes (mostly moms and children, but also a few brave dads) could be often spotted anywhere on campus. Several booths displayed attractive hat products and accessories as well.
The primary event celebrating the was the hats judging and prize giving by Beijing’s famous millener and designer, Elisabeth Koch.
In addition to hats, choir, and Beijing opera, the many other activities and products displayed. Tip Tree pastry from England won a lot of attention with their staff’s impressive white uniform skirts. A football game brought a lot of fun and good spirits.
