Punta Allen this week was extremely exciting as the town held a spring festival, all the children from the kindergarten and primary classes came together to welcome the coming of spring. They performed a play and a few musical dance numbers, in which the GVI staff and volunteers were asked to be special Guests, the people of Punta Allen made us feel very welcomed and appreciated, It’s too bad that Valeria our most committed and compassionate staff member who put in so much work into the Punta Allen outreach project couldn’t be there. The children put one a Shakespearian calibre play, recreating the suspenseful drama of snow white and the seven dwarfs beautifully; all were dressed in amazing home-made costumes, which we found very impressive. The play was followed by some amazing dances. Our favourite was the “La Ranita” dance number, which held a hand full of primary students dressed in green spandex and tutus; there show fit for Broadway was incredibly entertaining and well performed.
Unfortunately at the end of this week a much-loved scholar is leaving, his time is up here and he has to return back to a cooler England. Robbie is going to be greatly missed by everyone here (mostly for his beautiful singing and flamboyant dance moves).
