CMCA transformed into "World's Fair"
Margaretville — The Catskill Mountain Christian Academy was recently transformed into a “World’s Fair” as an enthusiastic crowd was treated to an enjoyable time of food, fellowship and learning at the CMCA’s International Night celebration.
Visitors were invited to stop by the various country exhibits to view the beautiful flags and interesting display boards, sample delicious ethnic cuisine, and ask questions of each country’s student representative. Two students, Courtney Spaulding and Coby Piskacek, shared additional information about France and the Czech Republic, respectively, to the appreciative audience. Courtney Spaulding received the trophy for the top overall project.
A culmination of three months of work, International Night was coordinated by Chris and Judy DiBenedetto of Halcott Center. Students in grades one through 12 chose a country to pray for and research, learning in depth about their country’s leaders, governments, religions, languages, histories, economies, natural resources and culture.
Students prepared written reports, informative display boards, flag replicas and local cuisine. They also gave oral presentations on their findings, followed by a question and answer time.
