Our final school week started with something rather special organised for our children and staff, as we had a special visit from the Rainbow Fairy, Pongo the Clown, and Oli their golden retriever who together put on a wonderful show with an important message about healthy eating.
The show was arranged by Noi Orizonturi Familia, a not-for-profit association in Romania, to raise money to enhance the quality of life for all members of the community, especially those who are poor, suffering, or are otherwise disadvantaged.
In the show named “Let’s grow beautiful, grow healthy!”, Pongo (Victor) has a sore stomach and is wondering why? The Rainbow Fairy (Alina) helps him and together with Oli teaches Pongo how important it is to eat fruit and vegetables, but also the consequences of an unhealthy diet! Interactive games, humorous skits, songs, dances, and “Oli’s stunts”, were all a part of the 1 hour show that had our students and staff clapping, cheering, and laughing throughout.
We also managed to raise over 1000 ron for a very worthwhile cause.
