Making Dream Catchers! 15 February

Yesterday we made some beautiful Dream Catchers!!

For our morning session we watched a video online to show us how to make the centre netting, but by the afternoon session I was an expert and was able to demonstrate for the students!

It was then time to get creative and decorate the dream catchers with hanging material, beads and shells!

They now have excellent souvenirs or gifts for friends and family back home!

As well as red and white wine, we had grapes and crackers to enjoy with our cheese!

The Apricot and Almond Cream Cheese was a definite favourite and finished within minutes of being put on the table!

Many of the students then headed of to a BBQ at the beach to say a final farewell to some of our students who graduated that day!

The boys teams were 7 a side and each played 14 minute games (7 minutes each way),

with one match going onto penalties…

The other school only had 1 girl playing so she joined our girls and they split in to two teams of 6 and all played amazingly! Marta was even scouted by the Byron Bay girls soccer manager who saw her playing! Go Marta!

It was a really fun afternoon and a great atmosphere! We’ll definitely be doing it again soon 🙂

The weather was beautiful and warm, and the sea very inviting! Some of the students went for a quick swim first to build up their appetite!
