Semana Franciscana 3 of 5

Later that day after the Blessing of the Animals the primary school had there first ever Public Speaking Contest in English.  This may not seem like a big deal to you, but to the teachers and the students who participated, this was history in the making.  Below are photos from the event.

Then on Thursday, September 30th, the Primary School had the Spanish Public Speaking Contest. Now I have to say that I did not take any photos of the this event not because I am not in the Spanish Department but because my camera memory was full and the battery had run out.  Sorry!

On Friday, October 1st, the Primary School had their infamous Festival de Talentos aka Talent show. Even though there were was only a select group that performed in front of the whole school, we used up 5 lessons and a little over 2 hours of class time; and on top of that we did not hear who one!  The kids did a great job and think Shakira needs to pay the kids for dancing/singing to "Waka Waka" 5 different times throughout the show. Here are photos from this event.
