Soon after the singing the children were handed out their participation certificates, which they proudly received from the hands of the Director of the Centre.
Being openly and genuinely praised for the accomplishment in such a short period of time made me particularly happy (I can't deny it ...) because quite often people don't realise the work involved prior to this kind of courses and having one's work recognised did make my day.
Parents, grandparents, relatives and other guests made it then up to the first floor to see the Art exhibition prepared for them, which again surprised many because of what had been achieved in such a limited amount of time.
Once the children left with their artistic pieces Ana and I had to rapidly get back to "work" so as to have everything ready for the following group of 13 6 to 7 year old children. A new challenge (quite a big one) awaits me , one I won't be able to carry out without Ana's precious help.
Despite knowing most of the children who will be attending the next course I've set the bar too high ... and am therefore slightly worried as to the final outcome ...
