Monday May 24th the kids had a day-off of school, so we could celebrate Africa Freedom Day. We started in the morning with a lot of singing and dancing. The kids all had a lot of fun with this. There was also a little poetry, a quiz, and a lot of games. All the kids and all the teachers participated to make the day a lot of fun.
