Spreading Community Through Culture and Food at One School One World

By BB&N June 8, 2023

           The biennial gathering at the Upper School called ‘One School One World,’ celebrates the diversity of cultures represented at BB&N. Through sharing food, dance, and traditions with each other, families got a chance to explore what makes the BB&N community unique and special.

            After a brief hiatus because of the COVID-19 pandemic, the cherished community event made a triumphant return with a full slate of student performances and full plates of food. The shows included Bollywood dances, songs from Scotland and by Bob Marley, and even a Korean spoken-word poem. 

            The many tables filled with food were hosted by BB&N families as well as members from student and family affinity groups such as the Latinx-Hispanic Student Association (LHSA) and the Parents of Black Students (PBS). Some fan-favorite snacks included beef and chicken patties from Haiti, tequeños from Venezuela, and Soorj, an Armenian coffee. 

            Thank you to the DEIG office who worked so hard to make this event possible, and to all of the families who hosted tables to share their food and culture with the BB&N community.
