The annual Oakland Catholic World Fair was held in-person this past week in the Donahue Pavilion and Joan of Arc Theater. With the help of 2 phenomenal international speakers, 70 student volunteers, and all campus faculty, organizer & Latin teacher Heather Day excitedly welcomed students to interact with over 50 booths highlighting different countries and customs from around the globe. Participants learned about a wide variety of issues and tried out some new cultural traditions, exploring everything from how countries are combatting climate change to how to put on a Japanese kimono. REEES GSA, Mairin Plant, represented REEES at the event with a digital game of Easter egg traditions in the East European region.
