A Walk of Flavours

What a spectacular and colourful array of international culinary delights, drinks, chocolates and prizes! Thank you so much for making this lunch so special for the staff.

The support and help for the day were overwhelming, so thank you to everyone who contributed and helped out. Special thanks to Biggy Wolff, who, as in previous years, transformed the ’Café des Amis’ with her artistic skills into a decorative dining hall with a wonderful ambiance ; to Cath Roberts, who organised all the « drop and go » mornings ; to Tamra Hooker, who made everyone laugh while they had their photos taken with the « camel prop »! and, of course, to Myriam Larfaoui, who always gives so much time, effort and enthusiasm towards every school event.

To fit with the day, April Fool’s Day and Poissons d’avril, there were bowls of goldfish on the tables, colourful fish designs by the primary school for teachers to write their jokes on (thank you, Mrs Bearman), a competition for the most comical wig or hat, and, a competition for the name of next year’s lunch.

Congratulations to all of the winners ! Most comical wig or hat :

2nd Prize : Jérôme Hébant

With my daughter, Kali, leaving at the end of this school year, I will no longer be heading up the organisation of this event. It has been a wonderful experience, with a great team to work with, and I have thoroughly enjoyed seeing all the varied international dishes that you have brought to the lunches. Thank you so much. Tanya Schmiedel will head up next year’s lunch, supported by the experienced existing team. If you would also like to get involved in helping to organise next year’s event « Aromatastic » , please contact Tanya :

Reminder : Any dishes that have not yet been collected have been stored in the PTA room. Please contact Tanya, Myriam or myself if you need to collect your items.
