Inclusivity in Action: Celebrations at Manchester
Manchester International School, a hub of cultural diversity, unity, and festivity! At Manchester International School, we believe in the power of celebrating together, fostering a sense of togetherness, and nurturing an environment that embraces the rich tapestry of Indian and international cultures. Our students actively participate in a multitude of festivals and events, symbolizing the unity in diversity that defines our great nation.
Our Diverse Celebrations:
As part of our earnest endeavour to instill in our students a deep appreciation for India's rich heritage and a profound respect for its diversity, we proudly celebrate a wide array of Indian and international festivals. This cultural tapestry at MIS brings students together and reinforces a sense of national pride and respect for all. Some of the festivals we celebrate include:

Our Monday Assembly is an integral part of our school's weekly calendar. Every Monday morning, our entire school assembles in the auditorium for a special ritual. Together, we recite the school prayer, sing the school song, and proudly stand for the National Anthem. This moment not only sets a tone of unity and reverence but also creates a sense of belonging that students carry throughout the week. Moreover, during these assemblies, we have short presentations that educate and inspire our students about various aspects of our cultural heritage.
Throughout the academic year, Manchester International School hosts several Special Events, each more exciting than the last. These events showcase the creative talents and diversity of our student community. Every class takes centre stage, presenting a program that aligns with the festival being celebrated or explores thought-provoking themes through drama, dance, or music.
