We discovered this morning that one of our dear dogs, Mullet has been run over by a car and passed on to doggy heaven. He was such a funny character so we feel very sad. Even Noodle and Tin Tin looked sad this morning after they too learned of the demise of their banana loving furry friend and fellow barker.
ps The staff delivered fabulous presentations this morning. I was so overwhelmed by their creativity and the excellent way they took the theory from yesterday and put it straight into practice. What a team… We had Christmas tree lights to set us on fire (by wonderful Sister Annuncia), thinking about salt via an Egyptian mummy visualisation (a great segue by Ofa) a glitter and hand cream activity to demonstrate the transference of germs (brilliantly delivered by Kina), a provocative tourism message by Kotoni about the critical importance of keeping the environment clean, as well a sing-a-longs, physical exercises, personal story telling and strategic questions to get us all thinking and engaged about the topic being delivered. The two hours just flew! I know our teachers are now armed with a few new teaching strategies to kick off their year when the students arrive next week… Bring it on!
