Flag bearers at our 2023 International Assembly.After a four-year hiatus, the International Assembly took place as part of the Years 9–10 Assembly on Friday 15 September, and was a great celebration of the diversity of the St Andrew’s community. Flag bearers represented 11 countries from Asia, South America, the Pacific, and Europe. They provided a welcome and introduced themselves in their native tongue. A prayer in Mandarin was delivered by Makayla Dai (Year 13) followed by a karakia from Hanaatia-Te Kani Hakiwai (Year 9).

Tim Hellmann (Year 12) from Leipzig, Germany gave an entertaining talk, which highlighted the differences between New Zealand and Germany, with a twist of humour. Cartier Barrett-Rawiri and Milla Hooker (both Year 10) presented a recap of their Presbyterian Ladies College, Sydney student exchange. The last item was a high energy K-pop performance from Yinan (Vivian) Lu (Year 11) and RuoLin (Lauren) Li (Year 9).

The International Assembly showcased the cultural richness, featuring flag bearers, multicultural introductions, and diverse student presentations.
