Hi5 Easter Event 2014!

Hi all,

Are you enjoying Spring? We kicked off the new school year with our first event: Easter!
We were worried all week about the forecasted bad weather, but in the end, it was just cloudy and a tad chilly.
We had a record turnout this time and the judges had a difficult time deciding on the winners of our Easter Egg contest. There were just so many good ones!

           
 
矢印Simply amazing!


矢印How well can you throw a frisbee? Frisbee golf!


矢印Don't let the eggs fall!


矢印Egg hunt time... Charge!


矢印What's Easter without some hopping? Daniel sensei showing how it's done. 

     
矢印2 of our lucky prize winners! 

Thanks everyone for making the event a success! We hope you can join us again next year!

Hi5 Halloween Trick or Treat 2013!

Hey all!

Do you know what time of the year it is? It's Halloween!! Time to go trick or treating!

Typhoon 26 and 27 almost scuppered our plans to hold our annual Halloween event, but we decided at the last minute on Saturday morning to proceed and brave the rain and winds that may come. 
I have to say that despite the potentially inclement weather and the last minute decision to go ahead, almost everybody turned up in their costumes and were raring to go! Awesome! 


矢印Listening intently to the instructions.


矢印Doing the Time Warp!


矢印Best family getup! 


矢印Our little Mad Hatter


矢印Aloha Batman!


矢印The Cat Girl!

Thanks again to everyone who came and made this event a success! And special thanks to all the shops who participated as well! *applause*

Hi5 American Summer School 2013!

Hey all,

Did you enjoy your summer vacation?

We had our American Summer School in July and it was chock-full of activities! Other than learning about America, we made pinatas, tie-dye T-shirts, experimented with colors and magnets and played hoops and Frisbee golf!
We ended off the third day with a BBQ hot dog lunch and smashed our pinatas to collect the treasures inside.

It was a tad tiring, but everyone had a great time! Thanks all for your fantastic efforts!


Starting each day by reciting the Pledge of Allegiance


Making our pinatas


Collecting pictures for our ocean collage. "In the sea?"


Doing our Color Experiment reports!


Watching how to make tie-dye T-shirts


Decorating our pinatas


Playing hoops while waiting for our BBQ lunch!


Let's whack the pinata!


Say cheese!


Tired but happy!


Vincent
