UN Day festivities at the American International School

Nursery-school children and students at the American International School (AIS) came together for an early celebration of UN Day on 19 October 2018.  James Bradford of the fifth grade spoke on behalf of his fellow students and emphasized the common values of both the United Nations and AIS: "The UN is a place where everybody has their own role to play, to help every country in the world, no matter how big or how small. So… the UN is rather similar to the AIS where everybody has their part to play: we respect each other and enjoy having so many different countries represented. This is why we are all gathered here: to celebrate the UN, AIS and all our countries. Happy UN Day!" The AIS Director, Steve Razidlo, the US Ambassador to Austria, Trevor D. Traina and Anneliese Heber from UNIS Vienna also spoke at the event.
