What a beautiful sunny and windy day after the typhoon. Today we had a picnic lunch at Harbour View Hill Park. In the afternoon we had the pre-Unit 3 test. Some of us chose to sit outside to enjoy the gift from nature, soak in the sunshine and autumn breeze.

It was a day full of fun activities. It also happened to be Diwali and Saint Maur Day. Students dressed up in different country’s costumes.
I’m particularly thankful to the parents who brought in yummy food and helped out in potluck lunch. Without their help we wouldn’t have had such great experience. We also had a few parents presenting something from their country.
