On Thursday, October 24th, 2019 in Hoboken, New Jersey, we will celebrate United Nations Day. United Nations Day acknowledges the UN Charter initially signed by 50 countries on October 24,1945 intending to achieve peace and justice.
The event is an opportunity for us to celebrate its international-mindedness and reaffirm our vision for the future which is very much in sync with the UN’s: contribute to building a peaceful, collaborative world, in which we can all learn from each other. Each year we celebrate with student performances in Spanish and French and other activities related to various countries of the world. Students and teachers are dressed in traditional clothes representing over 20 countries worldwide.
This event contributes to raise awareness of human diversity among students, but also in the city: this year, Mayor Bhalla, will address the assembly at 3:30PM. There will also be a performance of Irish folk music / international music by the talented Shan and Dan.
