So far we have the following countries represented: Malaysia, Argentina, Singapore and Colombia. The children really look forward to Tuesday afternoons!

This week we had Zoe’s mum – Catalina come in to teach us about Columbia. 

The chef at the Colombian Embassy made us a special treat called – Almojábana.  Almojábana is a type of bread made with cheese and corn flour.  These Colombian treats are delicious for breakfast or for an afternoon snack with a cup of hot chocolate.

A few lucky students got try on some traditional Colombian costumes. We all got up (including the teachers and TA’s) and learnt one of the countries famous dances called the Cumbia. Our session ended with some interesting facts and questions and answers. 

What country will be represented next week?  We can’t wait to find out!
