INTERNATIONAL PEACE NIGHT
International Peace Night is a student-led event, exemplified not only the collaboration between the International Committee and UNESCO Club, but also the spirit of togetherness demonstrated by more than 95 performers from diverse backgrounds and 15 support crew members.
Kristin’s strong sense of internationalism is expressed clearly through the extraordinary performances, most of which are delivered by Senior School students. It is always so rewarding to witness the audience’s engagement and appreciation of the tremendous effort our performers and crew put into the show.
Through a myriad of unique cultural items, we are able to appreciate the distinct differences between each while, at the same time, appreciating the similarities. Through events such as this, performers, students, staff and parents alike can all learn the importance of respecting other cultures and the richness that they bring to our community.
IPN as an expression of cross-cultural solidarity as well as our diversity, and through it we hope to help foster growth in both our school community and country as we move forward as a nation.
Traditionally, all proceeds of the International Peace Night concert are donated to an international charity.

The annual Kristin Chinese Night concert sees Kristin Auditorium packed with audience of Kristin families and the wider community, school principals, board members and local MPs who come to support a night of celebrating Chinese culture.
The concert features students from Year 1 to 13 performing traditional dances, instruments and kungfu that has long been associated with the Chinese culture, but also showcases modern Chinese art forms - a highlight of which is the Lion Dance. As the closing act for Chinese Night, our performers are sent out with the sound of cymbals and drums to bring prosperity and happiness for our guests.
