It's been a while since my last post so I thought I'd kick things off with some fun pictures. I organized an art contest at my school a few weeks back. The theme was "World Peace and Friendship" and the contributions were sent off to Maputo for the national contest. I heard one of our students won third place for Southern Mozambique but I haven't yet heard who. Every participant from our school won a pencil, eraser, sharpener and a fancy certificate. The two winners got a set of colored pencils each.
I had a lot of fun with the contest. A few students really got into it and started coming over to my house for impromptu art lessons on the veranda. They don't often get a chance to express themselves creatively so this was a great opportunity for them. It was fun to see what they came up with.
Young people talking about their dreams. At the end it says, "I dream of peace and unity."
My only contribution from a female student. It says "happiness is always in children," "always happy," "world peace and friendship"
He wrote it in English!
A dialog about tolerance and fighting discrimination.
"Communication between people on different continents"
Hope you enjoyed the show!
