Last day of Summer school - Perú

Friday the 18th was the last day of summer school here in Arequipa. On Thursday the volunteers and kids from Triunfo and Maldonado schools let their hair down with a Carnival.

Several activities were arranged, including Throw-A-Wet-Sponge-At-Profe-Ben’s-Face, Monkey Bar challenge and a Face Painting station! And of course the inevitable water fight broke out at the end of the day. The kids were awarded prizes (school supplies and lollies) for completing a circuit of all the activities and they could go as many times as their little feet could carry them.

The kids enjoyed themselves immensely – thanks to all the preparations by the vols. We’ve had a great start to 2011 and look forward to welcoming all the children and teachers on the 1st of March.
