Dia de los Padres

Parent's evening at our children's school was a bit different from that in England. It wasn't a quiet chat about the progress and attitude of our children. It was a celebration for everyone with dancing and fun.

It started at about 8pm and went on for more than 2 hours - and meant that we didn't get to the Cherry Festival in Castillo de Locubin yesterday; we'll just have to go this evening instead - and was a wonderful, colourful, happy event and I got some lovely pictures.

Romy's class were 'El Fantasma Comeletras' - the ghost that eats letters, which I think is based on a song but I can't find any reference to it anywhere - and they did lots of ghoulish dancing.

I think Romy enjoyed it very much!

She's on the left with her hair swinging along.

Here she's followed by her friend at school and the one who invited her to join karate - Ismael.

And Ruy's year - there are three classes - were dancing the Cha Cha Cha and had a great time!

I like these photos because there are several of my English students here as well. Like Clara, the happy girl at the end of the line on the left of the photo.

And watching on, there's Pablo, looking like a little Roman cherub (ha!), and to the right, Paula and Maria - excellent students.

A colourful display. Lots of proud parents and grandparents watching on.

Cha cha cha!

And then there was the bouncy castle slide and five-a-side 'table' football games to play.

 It was a lovely parent's day.


  1. What beautiful children. I have not heard of the Ghost who ate letters, but, I love the costumes. So nice to see what is going on in other parts of the world.

  2. Thank you Kirsten - apparently the ghost who eats letters is a new method for teaching reading.

    It was a lovely, colourful and happy evening and very different from events back in England. And my children are happy here which makes me happy too!
