K-6 ‘International-a-thon’ 2022

What is the capital of Sweden?………What colours are on the flag of Japan?………What is the currency of Fiji?……..The national animal of Brazil is the jaguar. True/False?

These questions and many more will be answered at our Primary 2022 International-a-thon on Friday 12 August 2022 (Week 4).


All students from Kindergarten to Year 6 will be taking part in trivia-related activities that will have an international theme. The aim is to build our students’ general and geographical knowledge, by touching on all of the Key Learning Areas in a fun and collaborative way. As always, the JCA will generously match us dollar for dollar. Funds raised support exciting, new projects and initiatives for the Primary School. In the past, these have included the creation of the chill zone and the table tennis tables on campus.

On the day

  • Students will be gathering in groups (K-2 and 3-6) to compete in fun games of trivia. Prizes are up for grabs!
  • Students will be having lunch together in their trivia groups.
  • The canteen will be adding some ‘International Specials’ to their menu. They will be making Italian spaghetti (vegan) bolognaise and assorted Japanese sushi rolls.

If you would like your child to partake in these canteen specials, please place orders by 9.00 am Thursday 11 August 2022 through Flexischool accounts.


  • Sports uniform
  • Students are encouraged to wear either an accessory from their country (e.g beret from France) or a coloured accessory to match the colours on their country’s flag.

Please check the email that was sent this week with more details.

We look forward to an invigorating, fun and challenging day of trivia!
