Today the girls´ school had their festival which they organise 3 times a year. Each class performs a song, a little play, or a dance and parents are more than welcome to come and see the show. Eric had taken the morning off so we could go and watch our girls´ performance together. This year the school celebrates its 10th anniversary, and they have chosen "world school" as a theme. There are 23 different nationalities in school and they are proud to have so many nationalities and cultures represented. This festival was about nationalities. Sanne´s class had their performance at 8.45am, and Fleur´s class at 10.45am. Both classes performed the same songs. The first song was about doing the laundry, and the other one was about spider Anansi. Both songs were sang in Surinamese. I am not sure if their teachers explained what the songs were all about, but it was so much fun to hear them sing a song in a language that is not theirs. I always love to watch our girls. My heart melts when I see them acting so enthusiastically. It was Sanne´s first time, and she did great. She was not shy at all.
The pictures of Fleur´s class are a bit blurry as I haven´t been able to ask permission to the parents of her classmates to post the pictures on my blog.
