El Día de la raza es un festivo de 2014 en Colombia y se celebra el 13 de Octubre. At CGB DDLA has been celebrated for the last 12 years and is integrated into part of the CGB culture. DDLA is celebrated in a variety of ways, through song, dance, food, music and art.
Every year at CGB, a theme is designated for the celebration of DDLA. A World of Color was the theme for 2014, in which each student was to create a piece of art work that represented country and eventually displayed for auction to raise money to build two houses for low income families in Bogota Colombia. On DDLA day, our international parents set up tents of delicious food from their homelands and sold for a small fee, we had parades, art auctions, and dances. It was an absolutely beautiful day of celebrating internationalness. Below you can see some of the art work from students and video of the Year 12 and 13 Americans celebrating their culture. Enjoy!
