Today's school playground was deserted as the whole school took off to explore Italian culture at the Furlan Club for 'Italiano Festa'!
The day began with a quick flight to Rome with the help of 'Spectaculo Spectaculo' who hosted our dramatic visit. A Vespa arrived and we travelled to the Trevino fountain, the Pantheon, enjoying many experiences along the way. Everyone enjoyed participating in the songs and actions as they sang their way through Rome.
Groups moved onto learn the skills and the difficulties of playing bocce. Teams laughed and tossed their way through numerous games in mixed teams.Soccer proved popular on the soccer pitch and was hosted by Melbourne Heart. Everyone enjoyed a relaxed game, developed their skills and laugh at themselves as they played. It was great to see everyne playing together so well.
Here's a little of what they students in 34J thought as they returned from the day;
"Today we enjoyed the bocce because we bowled the balls and enjoyed knocking the jack and scoring points.” Victor
"I found the cooking activity fascinating because we learned how to cook crostilli and it tasted delicious.” Hannah
"I liked the show in the morning especially when we were throwing giant coins into the Trevi Fountain. When she was on the Vespa bubbles and smoke came out!" Harmany
”My favorite part was the soccer. It was not only fun playing the matheson because it wasn't about winning it was about having an awesome time with Melbourne Heart players.” Tess
"I liked the gelati because I have never tasted an ice cream like that and it was an Italian ice cream.” Anu
"The pasta, bread and butter we had for lunch tasted really better than my sister's.” Amal
A very special thanks to Miss Leeann and 'her family' who shared their skills and passions with us. Wihout their hard work and generous spirit the day would never have happened.
