End of School year

Here in Bolivia the academic year follows that of the calendar year, so mid december saw the close of Alana’s second year of studying at Acuarela. In order to celebrate the close of the year and the festive season the children had all been busy creating lots of christmassy things and practicing hard for the end of year performance.

In the last week of term we were invited to go and see all of the children's work before coming home with arms loaded full of creations and all of the work completed through the year.

Along with all of the creativity, the children had been learning new songs and a traditional Bolivian dance. On the sunday after the close of term, we made our way to one of the local theatres to watch Alana perform along with her classmates. We were very proud of all that she had achieved and accomplished during the course of the year.
