A couple of weeks ago, some 5th and 6th graders (including some of my students!) participated in an inter-school math competition. The test included logic puzzles as well as basic math. About 300 students competed. Last sunday we all found out the results in a ceremony held at the Cultural Hall.
They first called the students who received places 4 through 20 (clearly not all the students turned up!)
That's us in the plaid! Two are 6th graders and five are 5th grade. Three are from my class!
Then they called the names of the students who got places 1, 2, and 3...
...and two sixth graders got places 1 and 3! (one of them from my class last year.) I'm so proud of them! (and loving the primary colored shoes!)
The actual awards ceremony went quite quickly and the rest of the night was filled with performances from different schools.
There was a fashion show in which kids were dressed up as bunnies, birds and trees. Someone even had on a Goofy mask.
These girls did a traditional Lao dance.
Then there was a traditional Vietnamese dance.
And finally another Lao dance which told the story of silk-making.
(Try not to let the misspelling on the sign bother you too much!)
