Our Past Events
St patrick's day 2020
St Patrick's Day, held on 17th March, is an annual event here at St Patrick's International Academy. This year, we had a fun-filled day with loads of games and activities.
Our activities include Twister 2.0, Tug of War; where students had to recruit a teacher to be in their team, Capture the Leprechaun (originally capture the flag), Wet the Teacher & Student; where teachers and students alike volunteered to be the target of wet sponges, Artheraphy; featuring a blank canvas for everyone to add something to create an artwork, a scavenger hunt, and a football juggling & freestyle competition!
We ended the day with a cultural fashion competition where our staff and students showed off their traditional outfit, and a talent show featuring music and dancing.
Our students played a big part in organising the event, building their organisational, collaboration and communication skills along the way. A day of much needed fun and bonding between teachers and students. Here at St Patrick's International Academy, we work hard and play hard!
Christmas Market for charity
Christmas is the season of giving! In that spirit, we held a Christmas Market to raise funds for charity.
We had various food and drinks stalls; from Mikos, Caribbean Bistro, Maravi Bakes and Michy's cakes to name a few. We also had some non-food stalls selling books, fashion & cosmetics, natural body products, kitchenware and stationery. To top it off, we even had a mendi stall, a face-painting stall, and a lucky draw with pretty, wrapped presents. Entertainment include, carols by the school choir and a saxophone performance.
Even Santa Clause paid a visit and offered treats to boys and girls!
Besides providing a platform for local businesses to gain exposure, all profits went to charity! We used all profits from stall bookings and entry fees to buy high-protein food for the Burns Unit at Queen Elizabeth Hospital. We donated 5 crates of eggs, 200 packets of 50g soya pieces, 25kg of Soya-Maize porridge flour and ten 500g packets of powdered milk. Thanks to the support we received, the patients at the Burns Unit have access to high-protein foods that will aid in their recovery. That's what Christmas is all about!
On the 14th of February 2020, we threw an Anti-Valentine's Disco to raise funds for our Form 5 prom, and also offer a chance for students to unwind for the mid-term break. Our student councils chose the theme, to spread the message that we don't need romantic love to enjoy high school life.
It was a night of dancing, music and taking photos. We featured a unique Photo Booth that offered 12 different backgrounds and special effects. Teachers were patrolling inside and outside the hall, to ensure that all students were on their best behaviour.
The night ended with everyone's phone full of pictures, and their hearts full of joy.
