WHAT an excellent end to a very busy month! Clearly the picture speaks for itself. We successfully ran and ended the first stream of both the Basic Course in Pattern-Making & Garment Construction and the Basic Fashion Course for Juniors. I'll tell you about the Basic Course in another post. This post is strictly for my cuties who attended the Basic Fashion Course.
WOW! I honestly have no clue how parents in charge of lots of kids cope. My goodness! Handling a bunch of teenagers was quite a challenge but I thoroughly enjoyed it. Of course I had done it before but then I was a guest facilitator at another children's course. But seeing I had full control and ownership of this Course, it was another ball game entirely! The conversations, the yelling, the arguments, wow! It was something else but I enjoyed every second of it.
I'd have loved to say "ahhh.... the innocence of childhood but mehn!... the knowledge the young ones of today have is shocking! Wow! I'm not sure I was that exposed when I was their age. The 9 year old speaks like an 18 year old! Like seriously! I learnt a whole lot from them!
But the best part is, none of them wanted to leave when it was over. I had to force them to complete their projects today because I really had to wrap up the class. But seeing their reluctance to leave told me I definitely did something right! :-D
Check out the pictures and judge for yourselves. I'm sure you'll enjoy them!
@ the Beginning...
Hard @ Work:
Or Not... :-l
The Importance of Teamwork:
The finished work...
& the look of pride at their achievements...
The hardest part really was saying goodbye... :'(
But it wouldn't have been complete without the group pictures...
Yup! It was a great 3 weeks but phew! I am beat! They were a bit of a handful but I am glad that I was given the opportunity yet again to add value. Thankfully the Basic Fashion Course for Juniors only takes place during the term holidays so I've got time to recoup. The next stream will be in December and I sure need the break! So hope to see your young ones at the Stream. I'm sure they'll love it!
Here's me wishing you the very best of the "-ember" months and the rest of the year! Pictures of the just concluded stream of the Basic Course in Pattern-Making & Garment Construction coming shortly.
Enjoy September 2012!
