Down Time

From Mondays – Thursdays, the Old Portena girls get together for thirty minutes after dinner to have some fun time to ourselves. Tonight we had some impressive gymnastics and beach ball skills but each day is different:

Monday is to learn and practice a musical instrument.

Tuesday we go to the dome to play some sport.

Wednesday is games night.

Thursday is ‘your choice’, reading, music, basketball or whatever you enjoy most.

Ceilidh Dancing Time!

A ceilidh (kay-lee) is a Scottish dance party where we dance in partners and in small groups to traditional Scottish music. Miss Becky has been teaching us some of the dances over the past two weeks. We started with the Gay Gordons last week – this week, we learnt the Military Two Step!

Special mentions go to Mariia, Valeriia, and Anastasia who have picked up the dances very quickly and worked well with their dance partners from Concha!

Old Portena House Meetings

Each week two girls volunteer to organise and lead our house meetings on Wednesday evening. Today Irina and Liza put a lot of effort into planning, leading and preparing a surprise for the house. They did a great job!
