Today, it was the annual kermesse – a word derived from the Dutch language– or fete in Indira and Noor’s school.
This typically involves a dance performance by every class, followed by food and games stands.
Noor’s class – the moyenne section – were adorable as they did a German polka.
Indira’s class put on an impressive act as they danced to “I’ve got a Feeling” by the Black Eyed Peas.
As I watched their well-practiced hip-hop moves, I found myself thinking that this was a far cry from the more sedate stuff we used to do in school all those years ago (cut to a memory of my classmates and me in Grade 5 or 6 or 7, holding candles on stage, dressed in white and singing “God’s love, is so beautiful…” or some such under Sister Manisha’s direction).
This afternoon was so much more fun !
