..so i tried to slip away discretely, i always try to leave a place quietly and with zero fuss if possible, but this was not to be… when i was saying goodbye to her earlier in the day, S the headmistress asked my car to drive into and around the school quadrangle before i left. So i was a wee bit suspicious… Turns out the entire school, all 500 or so of them were outside lining the perimeters, waiting for me. There was music/waving/clapping, a giant banner and dancing, while I was driven around like the queen mum to wave good bye. So it was a bizarre scenario but i had to go with it so i waved and yelled back with gusto. For once i did not manage to photograph it as i must confess i became a little overwhelmed, when we got to the little girls whom i shared a house for a month (who were dancing on the stage) and some of them were crying and then so did i…like a big girls blouse… So no photos, i did film it though, maybe i will post it. Its pretty odd….
Photo crits around my mac, generally at the start and/or end of a lesson or field trip. The kids got pretty good at analysing/critiquing images.
These are some of the paper mache christmas decorations my 2 younger groups made. It took FOREVER, but i think they even surprised themselves with the results.
