Once again Uluhati is priviledged to play hosts to a group of school children, pre-schoollers to be exact,, together with their parents and siblings for a day close to nature away from the hustle and bustle of the city. There were 200 of them we were told. The actual occasion was their annual sports carnival and this time the Principal thought they should do something different. So apart from the usual games and matches there were also pony rides for the children and horse rides for the parents, plus a dip in the pool as well. Many parents also used the occasion to have their family picnics as well. Making good use of the many shady tree,s mats were laid out and the picnic boxes spread out. So I was not quite sure what to make out of it. Was is a sports day or a picnic day. Whatever it was it seemed great fun as the games went on as planned whilst the family watched and cheered from their picnic spots. Very relaxed fun. Very ingenious, I must say. WELL DONE, the organizers.
Thank you Tadika Mimos.
