Once more, on the 27th of April, we made a trip to a school farm. This time we went to “The Loft”, a school farm in Chapinería. There were a lot of different animals. We were astonished by the landscape.
The day was cold, it was about to rain. But we were very lucky, because it did not rain at all, and we were able to interact with and touch different animals. We touched little rabbits, and we saw pigeons and ponies. One of the ponies had just given birth to a baby pony whose father was a donkey and the baby pony was a mix between them, half a pony, half a donkey. It was a funny baby pony!!
Children also made numerous workshops: herbs, soaps, lollipops, etc. The workshops were done and explained by local monitors. They were done entirely in English. That was something that teachers and kids liked a lot.
Three-to-four-year-old children went home the same day but the other kids stayed with their teacher overnight. There was an evening party; it was amazing because after dinner they enjoyed a discotheque with guided games and free dance for little kids.
When the kids went to bed they were very tired, it was a hard but fun day for them. The following day, some of the kids woke up at 7:00 am. They started the day early and with a lot of strength.
During the second day they continued to enjoy the animals and the scenery, and more workshops.
It was an unforgettable experience, a unique and fun one. Spending two full days in the company of the teacher was a remarkable experience for all of the second cycle kids, as this is the last year with their teachers. We have spent many hours, days, months and even years together. They have taught us, teachers, many things, and soon they will complete the second course and move away… Another big step in their lives.
We are proud and happy for them and we want to thank you parents for the trust and faith you have placed on us. We hope you like the pictures and we wish you the best.
