United Nations Month in School

Monday, October 8, 2012

Via’s school announced October to be United Nations month. The students in the pre-K class were asked to choose a country to represent. Then on October 5, a Friday, the class will wear the national costume of their chosen country. Aside from wearing the national costume, each student will share with the class a word in their chosen country’s language. Mommies were requested to make a headband indicating the country, the flag and the chosen word so everyone in class will see it.

Syempre, pinili ko Indonesia for via because Daddy is Indonesian, Via has lots of Batik dresses. No need to spend for her costume. The school actually encouraged Mommies to be creative and not to spend on the costumes. Since Via has the perfect dress to wear, all I needed to make was the headband. 

I was excited to make the headband. I went to Robinson’s Department store and found a perfect brown, sturdy headband. The flag was easy enough. It was red on top and white at the bottom. Buti na lang simple and flag ng Indonesia. Red for courage and white for purity. For the Bahasa Indonesia word to share with the class, we chose Terima Kasih which means thank you.

At tamang tama may birthday celebrant kaya very festive ang araw na yun.

Dominique@Dominique's Desk October 11, 2012 at 11:41 PM  

That's really fun having a united nations day in school. It must have been really colourful with the kids in all the different costumes.

Farida October 12, 2012 at 4:41 AM  

This brings back so many good memories of my childhood days. Now I miss going to school for the activities :)

I also think that Via's school is considerate enough since it does not want the parents to be spending too much on costumes. Good thing she has many batiks available :)

Ditas October 12, 2012 at 11:51 AM  

Hi! My Henry will be celebrating UN day in his school next week. We cannot wait. Just got his costume. He'll be representing China.

January October 12, 2012 at 4:32 PM  

I'm looking for this kind of event soon when my son starts schooling na..

Mommy Maye October 13, 2012 at 2:29 PM  

They are so cute! One day my son will go through this too. So excited!

Khim October 14, 2012 at 5:46 AM  

When I was a kid, I do get excited when October comes because it is United Nations Day. We've got dress up ourselves in any costumes plus we're going to tour around the campus and become a star. :DD

Olga October 14, 2012 at 6:38 AM  

My preschoolers are also learning about other nations this entire month. Just last week, my 4-yr-old told me that she wants to go Japan and China. :)

tyna quimpo October 14, 2012 at 11:35 PM  

I remember my husband going to divi and me surfing the net for the costume. my daughter was assigned as ms. finland. it was fun! she won a prize too.

Lady Anne October 15, 2012 at 2:18 AM  

Oh, I remember grade school days! I love wearing costumes, my Mom made me wear Filipiniana every UN day though. Your daughter is cute in her batik! =)

RonLeyba@FilipinoFoodsRecipes.com October 15, 2012 at 7:49 AM  

Indeed it's UN Month. Lots of kids are now preparing their costumes for parade and such.

anygen October 15, 2012 at 12:11 PM  

I love the hat... unique and nainggit ako sa food in fairness..lol

Lalah October 15, 2012 at 4:36 PM  

luckily you get to choose what country to represent. My little girl was assigned to represent BRAZIL. Hard enough to find the costume. They will celebrate it this coming Oct. 25

Jellybelly,  October 15, 2012 at 6:38 PM  

Brazil! That's hard. Good luck with the costume. Exciting preparing for it though :)

Jellybelly,  October 15, 2012 at 6:41 PM  

Filipiniana is a great costume but lots of the kids were wearing it.

Jellybelly,  October 15, 2012 at 6:42 PM  

Yes it's fun! :)

Jellybelly,  October 15, 2012 at 6:44 PM  

UN month is great. It opens up the world for children.

Jellybelly,  October 15, 2012 at 7:03 PM  

Perfect timing ang birthday. Very festive ang UN Day :) Yes, she got the words right :)

Pinay Ricamora October 16, 2012 at 2:36 AM  

Great UN day activity! I never had the chance to do this even for my son!

Terry October 17, 2012 at 1:09 AM  

Nice costume :) Although mommies like us may have a difficult time looking for props and costumes, how (cute and adorable) our little ones would look like during the activity is enough reward :)

Grace | The Domestic Diva October 17, 2012 at 11:50 PM  

awww..too bad my daughter's school would not celebrate UN Month this year. I was actually eager to dress her up with Princess Jasmine-like outfit. I'm envious :D

Jellybelly,  October 18, 2012 at 1:11 AM  

It's such fun when kids dress up in costumes :)

Jellybelly,  October 18, 2012 at 1:14 AM  

Sometimes it does look like a lot of work for a one day thing but then, it's a lot of fun too :)

tet October 18, 2012 at 3:30 AM  

Cute event. And they're cute in the photo. I suddenly just like McDonalds.. :)

krizza October 18, 2012 at 9:17 AM  

This post reminds me when my daughter had joined Ms. UN contest in school. Mas excited pa ang Mom kesa sa anak. Hahaha

Elinessete October 20, 2012 at 6:58 AM

sanna October 20, 2012 at 4:58 PM
