Yesterday was the annual St Patrick’s Day celebration and to get into the Irish spirit we created a fun and lively celebration at the school. The celebration kicked off in the Irish traditional way, with some lovely cold Guinness for all who were wearing green.
Our first Irish game was potato throwing, with six participants the aim of this game was to get as many potatoes in the basket as possible. The game was close between all participants with most obtaining a 3/5 average of potatoes in the basket…. until Lox. With his wide enjoyment of potatoes from some of his traditional Indonesian dishes such as Gado Gado, he had an eye for the target gaining a 5/5 potatoes in the basket!!!
The next activity was Irish Dancing. With Irish Dancing expert- Nat available to teach the students his moves, the students then had to perform their best Irish Dancing moves for the judges- Carol and Miriam. If the participants were tapped on the shoulder, it meant they were eliminated from the competition. The final two dancing were Lorena and Daichi. Lorena’s technique was flawless, with even balance on two legs and nice point toes she was named the winner on the Irish dancing receiving a FREE surf lesson, courtesy of Student Uni Travel.
The final activity was ‘find the grapes in the jelly’. Participants were blind folded and hands were place behind their back, using their mouths only had to dig through the bowl of jelly looking for those Grapes. Well done again to Lox who was able to extract all grapes with the one minuet period, a new personal best for this young chap!
All the students then gathered outside for our Irish feast present by Sarah cooking class. What a fantastic job they did creating all these delicious green foods! Happy St Pat’s Day!!
