SCA celebrates second annual International Festival

February 26, 2014 

Zewen Zheng, junior international student from China, performs the Chinese Tea Ceremony and is assisted by international student Laura Xu. SCA Faculty member Ramona Geiger gave oversight to the tea room.


Summit Christian Academy hosted the second annual International Festival Feb. 18 at the SCA Elementary School.

The school-wide event featured beautiful sights, wonderful sounds, and pleasing aromas from countries around the globe. Visitors were invited to travel across several continents and sample the diversity of cultures.

“I am so very proud of the SCA students, from preschool through 12th grade,” shared international program director Kathy Tharp. “This is a night for students to showcase their talents through music, art, and share what they have learned about different countries across the globe. The amazing food is always top on everyone's comments and we had over 40 different dishes.”

The festival commenced with a parade of international flags representing the countries students have been studying.

Lee's Summit Journal is pleased to provide this opportunity to share information, experiences and observations about what's in the news.
