A Sunny-day Primary Pancake Party!

on Tue, 03/11/2014 - 15:50

To celebrate 'Shrove Tuesday' - or perhaps just to take advantage of spending a few hours together with our SIA friends! - the primary section got together on Sunday 9th March. It was a perfect afternoon: the sun shone, there was a seemingly limitless supply of pancakes, and we even had Jif lemon juice to go on them! (special thanks to the DuMerle family for bringing those back from the UK!)

A heart-felt thank you to ALL who contributed to making this afternoon such a success. Thanks also to Mrs Vernay and Mr Bouret for supporting the event and allowing us to plague them with questions.

Dishes filled the buffets giving people a wonderful opportunity to sample unique food (an amazing Ploughman's bread with caramelized onions) and converse with fellow parents and teachers.We had our General Assembly while the children played outside, a Saltimbuc skit and a fun MUN  mock debate. Thank you to Jim for his video presentation, to Michael who MCed the GA, to Mike for the It technical support, to Sherri and Gabriela our secretaries for the minutes of our GA, to Florence for her financial report.... A big thank you to all the volunteers, many hands make light work! There was a great turn out and everyone had a good time proving that there is no better way to get the new school year off to a great start than with a good old Potluck! Welcome on Board to our new Board members:Jerry our new Lycee VP and Gabriela our new secretary!  View all the pictures of this event under What's Happening/Galleries.
