Sports and Flag Day in Ecuador

Our kids had their first all schools sports day against 17 local schools down in Otavalo. Preparations were intense up at the schools the week before, with best efforts (and a little improvisation!) on long distance training, relay racing and ‘salto alto’ the high jump! Each school put together a team of its best budding athletes to compete.

All teams at Muenala, Larcacunga and Huayrapungo made great strides on the day and our Larc team proudly returned to school bearing 4 silver medals in sprint, shot put, long jump and relay!

February 27th was also National Flag Day - Día de La Bandera. On this patriotic day the children and teachers at each school got together to sing national hymns, recitals and award the top attaining students from each school. This year it was Muenala’s turn to host the proud were we, and of course Fanny!
