Week 4 - Last week
Looking through the boxes full of crafts that my kids made, seeing snippets of the song and dances that Maria taught the kids, hearing lines from the skits that Linda has been teaching, and seeing the fashion materials that Jess’s class has been making, is so bittersweet. The kids and we have been working hard all summer to create a performance and display for the closing ceremony. We had so much fun along the way! Now that they’re starting to master their performances and completed all their crafts, we know it won’t be long before we have to say our goodbyes.
This week we basically all just prepared for our closing ceremony! Below are some pictures from the ceremony (For more please click here!):
Arts and craft display boards. My students did an awesome job with their crafts! I had to make sure to make the display just as amazing!
I love my students and my co-workers!
I loved how the students gathered around art corner and took pictures with their crafts! Before the performances, all the teachers and students went on stage to receive certificates. Then the students got ready for their performances that they’ve been practicing for the past few weeks. Many of the parents, siblings, and SEAMO staff came to watch! Oh, and Thai came to our ceremony too! We knew that it would be the first time he attended a Summer Fun Closing Ceremony, so we were really glad that he could come! He said he really enjoyed it, but who knows if he’s joking or not… He had on his serious straight face, the one he makes when he’s trying to joke about something or be sarcastic. Either way, we’re still really glad that he made time to come, since he’s usually quite busy!
Anyways, I think everyone really enjoyed all of the performances and the kids and parents were proud of the crafts that they made. Words can’t even describe how much I will miss these kids and co-workers. Students have already started friend-ing us on Facebook and emailing us! I don’t mind them friend-ing me on Facebook at all. I love being able to communicate with them in any way possible! I hope that I’ll get a chance to come back and visit in the future.
After the ceremony, we had to all run back to the hotel and pack for our last weekend trip to Nha Trang! Our flight to Nha Trang was at about 5pm on Friday.
