Our Lady of Fatima Celebrates International Family Night

WILTON—On Saturday, November 16, the Academy Parent Committee (APC) held its 5th annual International Family Night. This highly anticipated event encouraged school families to prepare their favorite dishes, each representative of their respective nationality. A bountiful buffet was served by family members, with some wearing their ancestral country’s national colors or traditional dress. This year’s event featured culinary creations from 16 countries including Cambodia, China, Colombia, Dominican Republic, England, Germany, Hungary, India, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Norway, Philippines, Poland, Romania and the U.S.A. 

“This is one of my favorite Fatima events because it speaks to the diversity or our school and allows the community to share traditions with one another,” said Principal Stanley Steele. Clara Taveras, Academy school board member who leads the APC noted, “This event has evolved into a beloved tradition and offers an opportunity for Academy families with children of all ages to participate and bond over a special meal.”
