The long awaited post- International Unterstanding Day 2010

On the 15th of April 2010, Wesley Methodist School Interact Club held their 36th International Understanding Day. 'Greece Lightning' was the theme chosen for this year and hence, all the Interactors of the school dressed up as Greeks. The event that had taken months of hard work and planning was finally here- held in the multipurpose hall of the school. It began at 3.30pm and ended around 5.30pm. Nearly 600 guests, including Interactors from other schools and WMSKL students, turned up to support our Interact Club.

The Guests of Honour, Rotarian Hardeep Singh and Rotarian Andy Khoo also took time out of their busy schedule to attend our IU Day. The event commenced after the arrival of the Guest of Honour. In an effort to lighten the mood and set the atmosphere, the board members put up an extraordinary presentation, druing which they were all airplane stewards and stewardesses.

Rotarian Hardeep Singh gave an inspiring talk, praising our Interactors for being the first club in the KL DiRaja district for holding an International Understanding Day this year. Then came the speech by IU Director Interactor Anisha Passcuran, thanking all those who helped to make IU day a success. Soon after, the Greek entertainment began with a hilarious sketch by the Interactors, directed and produced by Interactor Jonathan Lee and Interactor Dhivya Nair. The sketch told the story of how the Olympic Games came about and how the Greek gods came together to fight the evil gods. It was incredibly successful with all our guests.

After that, a group of Interactors performed their Pandora's Box dance story, depicting the mythical tale of Pandora, the Greek girl who unwittingly unleashed all evil into the world. It was a dance performance led by Interactor Esther Foo Wen Yen. The performance was magnificent, and full of drama.

After that, there was a very special duet performance, by Interactor Wei Shi Khai and Interactor Lau Yen June on vocals, Interactor Low Zhi-Yang on guitar and Interactor Ivan Yun on drums. They performed popular songs from the 'MAMMA MIA!' motion picture, like Mamma Mia and Dancing Queen.

The event came to a close with the souvenir presentation. Our guests were treated with Greek food at the school cafeteria.

The Interact Club would like to once again thank all those who turned up for our IU Day, making it one of our most successful events so far. We worked hard for months, and we genuinely hope you had fun and that you will continue to support us in the future. (:
