“Meskel”: The Finding of the True Cross

Tuesday, September 29, 2015

ICS Addis celebrated “Meskel”, The Finding of the True Cross, with outstanding performances and enlightening ceremony. The Grade 3 play was a great performance explaining the details of the history of Meskel and the celebration of “Inku Tatash”- the Gift of Jewels. The stage was decorated with Meskel Daisies and the Meskel play included extraordinary costumes, exceptional musical direction and original songs!

The entire school and ICS community gathered to listen to the singing and drumming from the St. Gabriel Church choir as we watched the “Demera”, lighting of the bonfire. The lighting of the Demera marks the end of the Meskel celebrations, with a sincere wish of health, prosperity and joy to all throughout the year
