London life in all its glorious variety and energy

Had a lovely time at the Netley Public School International Evening earlier today, as did a great many excited pupils. A great turnout of parents too.

The DJ did a great mix – up-to-the-minute songs (at least I’m guessing that’s what they were, given some of the older girls knew all of the words and the accompanying actions), and music from around the world.

There was also an eclectic mix of food – including Australian traditional favourites of lamingtons and fairy bread, and a fabulous snack of puffed rice, gram noodles, onions and parsley whose name I have forgotten but was definitely more-ish, particularly the spicy version with mustard oil.

There were lots of simple games and pleasures. I haven’t heard how I went on guessing the number of Smarties in a jar; it was a large jar so I went for 720, based on some quick maths of numbers in three dimensions (yes, I can still do mental arithmetic when I have to!) And the queue of the throw the beanbags in the hoops was a bit long for me, though I would have liked a go.

A huge amount of work from staff and parents making for an unforgettable day for the children – well done all!
