Overall I think the day was a success. The children started off in there party clothes by singing "If you're happy" and a singhala nursery rhyme about a kite before doing the "Hokey Pokey". Then they had all their racing games in the appropriate costumes. There was a variety of games - one where they had to collect 8 flags out of a bundle, another where the girls were dressed as nurses and had to give dolls medicine, boys had to catch a fish, dribbling the cricket ball, collecting 5 vegetable out of a pile of fruit and veg and filling their bags with as many toys as they could in a set time
Each race had 1st, 2nd and 3rd prizes. Mark and I were at the finishing line most of the time and presented the prizes to the children at the end. The prizes were bags with pens, pencils, toys and other novelties. They were all pleased with them and there were consolation prizes so that everyone got something. They all deserved it.
So it's been quite a tiring day, but looking forward to doing it again tomorrow for the afterschoolers. Then after that it a drive down to Colombo for the weekend - you could say it's becoming my second Sri Lankan home!
