Today is the last day of class for nursery and primary school students (Secondary students finished two years ago). So it's a special day for all the students and teachers!
Here you can see some pictures of the water activities students have done in the playground and how we can get valuable information for our groups.

This is one of the best for children.























Transport the water in a small bowl on your head and avoid the big ball.





















Water gun fight.

Important outfit:
Flip flops, towels, bags, T-shirts, shorts, swimsuit, trunks, sunglasses, ...
