Last week we had a Pizza and Games Friday!

We treated the students to free pizza and had a mixture of games including Super Mario on the Wii, Twister, Pictionary, Jenga and Cards!

Super Mario and Twister were the clear favorites!

The students took it in turns to compete on Maria Carts and various other games on the Wii…

While others got twisted playing Twister!

We also had some of our artistic souls drawing beautiful pictures on the chalkboards for everyone’s enjoyment!

We’ll be doing a few different activities and competitions with the Wii over the coming months so watch this space!

Roman VS Shogo: Roman (11-9)

Onto the second round, the winners then making it through to the semi- final were:

Roman VS Tito

Tito played a good game but Roman, once again, walked away as our champion, winning 21-11!!

Tito was very gracious in his defeat and said ‘to come second to Roman in this competition is still a great accolade’; which I strongly agree with!

Enjoy your beers Roman 🙂
