Every Friday, selected Primary teachers have their children do an assembly for the rest of the Primary School. Recently it was Cristian's class' turn...

Fun at the amusement park!

We've found an awesome amusement park with rides and a mountain to climb. There seemed like a 1000 steps we walked down after riding up the mountain in a ski lift. The strangest part was how all the young female attendants of the park followed the boys around wanting to have their pictures taken as they showed a peace sign to the camera. Enjoy...

Life at the School!

Some pictures of the front entrance to the school. The building itself was destined to be a hotel but now provides an ideal environment for a school. Rather than being deep in a city, the building sits out on an island and is surrounded by greenery. Just a short stroll takes you, and your class, down to the waterfront. I have plans to take my secondary classes there to do some drawing. Also included in this batch are some images from Peter's first assembly and last week's awards ceremony. Both boys received an award. Cristian for Chinese, he's really excited about learning this intriguing new language and is turning everyone's head with his abilities. And Peter for math. Peter also wowed his teacher, Mrs. Rachael, with his interest in art when they recently visited a museum in Zhuhai.

Peter turns 8 and Cristian turns 6!!

We had the boys birthday party at the swimming pool and invited many of the faculty members that have young children. The boys have made some new friends and had a wonderful time. We had pizza from Mr. Pizza, a local Tang Jia restaurant that does a pretty good job. Though we all miss our Marcos Pizza from home. We want to try pizza hut here at the mall and might today after we visit an amusement park in Zhuhai. the pictures below include many of the friends we've made here, it's a very community oriented school, a friendly bunch all in all. Oksana wanted to show off the pool and the environment a little so there's quite a few of her in our tropical paradise.
