This evening, we attended the Future Professor Pre-Primary School's graduation and Christmas play. Kelly's class of 16 students had 12 graduate...they will attend Year One in primary school next year. It was a happy night for parents and students.
The cutest part of the evening was when Teacher Sussie had the graduates explain what they wanted to be when they grow up. There were three answers from the 12 students. "I want be a doctor so I can save people." "I want to be a policeman so I can reduce crime in Namibia." "I want to be a singer so I can make people happy." 8 doctors, 3 policeman, and 1 singer. Maybe that is about the right proportion for society, eh?! They had obviously practiced their answers, as they were very emphatic and crisp answers.
For the Christmas play, the students all had memorized a line to shout into the microphone to describe the first Christmas, and they sang 6-7 songs.
Here are some really bad mobile phone videos of the somewhat chaotic, but enthusiastic and heartfelt renditions of some favorites.
Merry Christmas to everyone from Namibia!!!
