Family Fun Day at AISJ

Saturday it was a gorgeous day and we had Family Fun Day at school. It is every year a big event for the children, since there are so many things to see, to do and have fun with all your friends.

(Unfortunately my battery died after only taken 3-4 pictures... but at least this gives you an idea of how it was)

There were rides for the kids, water slides, big blow up castles, climbing and sliding obstacles, face or henna painting. Used book sales for kids and adults, singing and other talent competitions, then all kinds of sales and auctions and one of the biggest auctions are the International Baskets. Each country organizes a basket with goodies from their country and then you can bid on it. Everything inside is donated by the parents and then you can bid on another basket. Stuff from all over the world is inside, so if you are particular interested say in Chili, France, Brazil, USA or Netherlands for example you can bid on that basket. No need to tell that the highest bidder gets the basket... so some times it can get really high if more people are interested in that particular basket. Fun.. Fun... Fun...

And all the money goes to charity! So whatever you spend is for a good cause!! So people don't mind spending on anything... which is nice to see. Everybody is having a good time, the sun is shining galore... it was actually VERY HOT! But you can buy food and drinks and ice creams, so at least you can cool down a bit... Most of the kids were running around in their bathing suits since there were plenty of water slides.

A fun day at a fun school! A big event every year and lots of volenteer work is involved!!
Congrats to all who organized and helped... you did a great job!!

Have a lovely Monday!

@Flyss: your time will come soon, it must be getting warmer, and by the time you are having your ice cream I am freezing of cooler weather here!!

And NO, I didn't win a basket, I guess my bidding was not high enough ;-(

@HH UK, sounds like a fun party on the 19th, have fun!

@Leah, yes we have a great school, lot's of activities planned during the whole year. PTA or PTO however you call it, is a busy organization here!
