A BLAST OF TRADITION

hello, hivers πŸ‘‹ how was your weekend?, well mine was pretty cool 😎 and filled with some fun activities that I decided to share with you.

The fun started on Friday when I got invited by one of my little friends ( I have quite a few of those 😁 ) to attend his schools Xmas party πŸŽ‰ πŸ₯³πŸ’ƒπŸ•Ί which is usually an end of year party organized by schools to celebrate with the students before school vacates for the Christmas holidays.

πŸ€” I did have somewhere else to be later than Friday but I just had to show up even if I wouldn't be able to stay through the celebrations πŸ‘Œ which was what I did.

This is master GREAT πŸ€— my little friend and one of the students who invited me to the party πŸ˜„

The school is called PERFECT STEPS nursery and primary school and I will be sharing some bits and snaps from its 2021 Christmas party.

The theme for the party was "Culture" which meant all the kids had to come dressed in their traditional cultural outfits representing some of the tribes in Nigeria.

This was a section of the students presenting a Christmas carol with my little GREAT leading the pack as its main singer 🎢🎀

Next to perform was a group of little angels from the KG 1 class πŸ₯°πŸ₯° They were supposed to recite some poems πŸ€”πŸ€” things don't always work out as planned lol at least not all the time.

What was the poem???

That look of surprise when It seemed EVERYONE had forgotten what poems they were supposed to recite πŸ€·β€β™€οΈ .

Does anyone remember???

I don't know about anyone else there but this group was my favorite of the day, too cute πŸ’žπŸ’ž

Unfortunately, not everyone was happy with this situation πŸ₯΄ which was part of the reason one of the princesses ended up in tears.

Can't imagine the disappointment she was feeling to know her entire class forgot their performance 😒😭 It was just too much for her to handle πŸ₯Ί

In the end, the crying princess abandoned ship and left the rest of the class to their fate as she ran off to seek comfort from her mom πŸ˜‰ luckily the class teacher saved the day by reciting the poems herself while the kids just clapped along 🀣🀣🀣 #NiceSave

There was also a spelling bee, a debate competition with the topic "is a boy child or girl child more useful in the home" πŸ€” which reminds me i never did find out the result of that debate smh good luck to whoever had to judge that one and also a news segment where two of the kids played presenters and shared some of the trending news with the guests.

There was a choreography dance as well and it was clear to everyone present that the little girl in front didn't come to play πŸ’―

These kinds were truly a talented bunch and watching them dance with that carefree smile makes me wonder what it would feel like to relive that age.

The next group to perform were these two little angels who sang 'Silent Night', got to love how cute they looked in this dress up πŸ’―

Afterward, it was time for some more singing and dancing, and this time the kids presented a cultural dance showcasing the Igbo culture 🀩

Dance in motion? lol pretty much πŸ’ƒπŸ’ƒπŸ’ƒ

And they went down even lower πŸ₯³

That was quite a dance I'm telling you πŸ˜‰ and the follow-up to this act was another cultural performance this time showcasing the rich culture of the itsekiri people from the niger delta region from their dressing to language.

Above was one of the children giving a recitation in the local language dressed in complete traditional regalia.

Afterward was a competition called DRESSING TO SCHOOL where the kids have on shorts and singlets with their uniforms, socks, and shoes placed in front of them.

The task was at the go signal each child runs to his or her pile of clothes and puts each of them on just like they are preparing for school, the winner is the kid who dresses up the fastest and must have put on all pieces of items correctly.

At the end of the day, she won this particular contest for making the best time and showing that yes she was capable of dressing herself up for school without assistance πŸ‘ good job.

Around this time I needed to leave the party so didn't catch the rest of it 😊 but I had loads of fun and it felt good to celebrate with the children, share in their joys and watch them showcase their talents πŸ‘Œ

Master GREAT is great indeed. And the baby in yellow dress, why was she crying, is she camera shy?

Great is Great Indeed, that little one is built for great things.
The little girl in yellow? yes she appears to be shy because she started crying immediately they came out and didn't stop until she was safe with her mom πŸ˜† after all the rehearsal they did for weeks in school.
Thanks for stopping by πŸ’―

πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

The part where the children forgot their poem, and the other girl left crying out of embarrassment was really funny 🀣🀣🀣🀣🀣🀣

I mean how do you turn shots to meme like this ?? πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

I don't even want to talk about the dancing group and the girl in front who clearly didn't come to play 🀣🀣🀣

Babe, you made me laugh really hard this morning πŸ˜…πŸ˜…πŸ˜…

🀣🀣🀣 don't mind me, one of these days one of the mothers of these children will come and beat me for making memes out of her child's pictures lmao the truth is that I just can't help it, maybe I watched too much comedy in the past and all that humour is stuck somewhere in my head 🀯

You have to admit the litle girl in front of the choreography group was giving her 101% while the others were dancing at 30% 😁

Dear if this post was able to make you smile then I have done my job for the day πŸ˜‰

Oh my dear, I am totally aware of occasions like this.
I live in Nigeria and when I was young I think I might have attended some end of the year parties of my school.

You did have a great time watching these children perform

It was so much fun @thekittygirl πŸ€— and the school was smart making it a culturally themed party πŸŽ‰ so colorful and bright, my only regret was not being able to stay till the end of the party thereby missing out on the pageant competition.

Super glad you enjoyed the post and I appreciate the support mam πŸ™.

The kids truly were amazing and I'm still glad I made the effort to attend the party 😊 it was one of the highlights of my weekend.

🀣🀣🀣 actually the little girl was crying because she didn't want to stand in front of the guest to sing and stopped crying as soon as she went to her mom,I'm just having a little fun with the pictures.

This post brings back memories of all the fun stuff we did back in the days during such occasions. It's always very fun with many activities. Heheh

The time we get to meet Santa in one of those hidden office is usually the best. I'd remember some kids crying as if they saw a ghost πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚.

You had a good time with these youngies.

This is what many of them missed last year because of Covid19. I'm glad that they got to celebrate it this time around.

Your completely right πŸ˜„ sitting there and watching those kids bought back a lot of memories and I have just as much fun as any of the adults there.

I would be one of the kids crying when Santa Claus came out back then 🀣🀣🀣 he scared the hell out of me lol it wasn't until I was made to understand that it was just some guy in a costume that I was able to relax.

Thank you so much for stopping by πŸ‘ and to #dreemport for sharing.

This had to have been a blast to watch these little guys in the show, I have forgotten what it was like in early school. Even when our kids were young it is sort of hard to remember, as it was so long ago. Glad you had a good time, and even more important, that they had a good time. Except for the little girl. I hope she got much better and more well acclimated by the time you left.

It bought back memories for me as well πŸ€” although in my younger school days I wasn't as chippy or carefree as these kids but I did enjoy watching them have fun 😊

The little girl actually had stage fright, as soon as she was bought with the rest of her class and saw everyone watching her was when she started crying but she stopped as soon as the teacher let her go to her nom instead, so yeah so was fine.

Thanks for stopping by @jamerussell appreciate it πŸ‘
