Photos of the football day on October 6th. The children had a great time but it bucketed down with the heaviest rain. They weren't the slightest bit daunted, nor their enthusiasm dampened! You can see by the girl sitting in the water how flooded the ground became! At half time, during the adult match they were watching, we trucked them home because they were getting very cold, with teeth chattering! This was the first time in the history of the school that students had been taken on an excursion. They were so proud of thier new sports clothes? Numbered 1-40it made it easy to account for them all. There were 20 boys and 20 girls.
So much gratitude goes to the CGS students for providing these sports clothes. Not only did they look smart and part of a team (which really impressed the hosts, Cambodian Eagles Football Club) but otherwise the girls would be playing in skirts and the boys in jeans - not a good look or practical.
This was the first time in the history of the school (including the old school) that students have been on an excursion. They were so pleased and excited by the outing.
