My kids' school celebrated the founding anniversary of United Nations with an exhibit and music from different parts of the world. The event highlights the showing of "Aladdin Around the World" showcasing different National Dances.
The stage, the sounds and lighting, and of course the performances are all impressive.

The UN Celebration ended with the entire school student community carrying flags as they sing the song, "We are the World."
"We Are The World"
United Nations (UN) founded in 1945 is an international organization which aims to promote cooperation in international law, international security, economic development, social progress, human rights and achievement of world peace.
Every October, various schools and learning institutions across the world celebrates United Nations Day to help students understand and appreciate cultural diversity.
It had been a wonderful and fulfilling school activity. It's my kids' and my youngest sisters first performance at their big school and we're all proud seeing them dance and sing on stage.
