Día de Independencía- Colegio Episcopal San Andrés Apóstol

Students from Colegio Episcopal San Andés Apóstol prepare for the Independence Day parade

Central American Independence Day, September 15, was a wonderful opportunity for the youth from Colegio San Andrés to show off all of their hard work and talent. Members of the band, baton squad, tiny pre-k c
heerleaders, children from every grade dressed in traditional costume and as representatives of the different processions, and students looking smart in their school uniforms waving Salvadoran flags filled the streets with their music, moves, and marvelous selves. At the show following the parade, students danced traditional dances, sang the national anthems, and explained the national seals, flags, and flora and fauna of all the Central American countries.
