Day of the Inicial in Perú

This week we celebrated the day of the inicial on the Phoenix Teaching Project Peru. Eighty years ago the first inicial opened his doors in Peru and every year they celebrate this anniversary with many festivities. On Wednesday we held a birthday party, for the inicials, in our school, we had dances, games, a lot of confetti and plenty of fun.

On Thursday we held a loud march, with whistles and clackers, in town with placards made by the mums to show everybody how proud we are and then we were off to visit a neighbouring inicial to show off. To end the festivities there was a talent night on Thursday evening for all the inicial teachers from the district.

Our inicial teacher Lucy and her friends gave an amazing, and some might say “unique”, dance performance which i’m sure we won’t be forgetting any time soon. Happy 80th anniversary inicials in Peru!
