2nd FES Olympiad

Three times a year there are sessions of school called FES (this is the time when village families come to Yaoundé and get to be in the classroom with others and taught by teachers, rather than homeschooled).  The first session is in August, the second in December and the final in April.  The school year starts with a FES session.  There are different focuses during FES and this particular session’s focus was Ancient Greece.  We had PE three times a week starting at 7:30 to prepare for the Olympics, which took place on August 31.  The Olympics started with a torch run from the compound where school is to the compound where we live that has a soccer field.  The games were opened in prayer and the events started.  Enjoy the pictures.
