Carmel students and teachers celebrated Israel’s 73rd birthday all day on Thursday 15 April. The day started with a performance put on by our Tzevet at our Presentation Assembly which showcased the wonders of Israel’s economic attainments in the 73 years since independence. The ruach continued on the oval before mixed peer activities and crafts took place. It was so heartwarming to see the genuine displays of kindness and nurturing from our older students towards the younger ones.

After lunch, our colour run took things to a more energetic level as students attempted to escape teachers pursuing them with squeezie bottles of powdered paint! It was a day of exuberance and excitement (ending with a significant dose of messiness) from start to finish and we’re so proud to have been able to do it in celebration of Israel’s special day.
