PRINCIPAL’S LETTER

Dear Student Rep,

Thank you for your help in organizing the recent International Day. 

As you know, this was the first event of its kind which has been held in the college. Hoping to hold similar events in future, we need to assess how successful the International Day proved to be.

I would be grateful if you could carry out a survey among the students and prepare a short report on their reactions. Please include some recommendations based on your survey.

Your help is appreciated.

N. Foster

Principal

Report On College International Day Activities

Introduction

The aim of this report is to evaluate information based on the feedback collected from the participants in February 2015 International day amateur party, and the data collected from the organisers. Those pieces of information will be summarised as well several recommendations will be offered in order to increase satisfaction of the students in the future.

Event activities

There were the international students offered to give the presentations on their native culture peculiarities. As Principal N. Foster mentioned in the request letter, such social event was organised firstly and attracted great attention from the domestic students, with support from the Student Union.  In fact, as the poster advertised, the participants were supposed to show the national features of cuisine, music and dances, etc. As a result, the overwhelming majority of the students expressed great enthusiasm for the event.

Survey details

Most participants commented favourably on the international flavour of the team and enjoyed the opportunity of socialising closely with the representatives of other cultures. It was widely felt, however, that a number of students would have benefitted from a better organisation of the event, as some problems with the timetable were experienced. A few students were dissatisfied with the lack of loud music and the size of dancing floor as well.  In general, the students appreciated the opportunity given to broaden their cultural horizons.

Recommendations and conclusion

To sum up, it is highly advisable to put into place similar projects in the future. In order to avoid drawbacks it is recommended to plan the events thoroughly in advance and ensure a more international mix of participants.
