Life at school isn’t all about sitting in classrooms, watching the teacher write on the board or listening to them talk about another grammar point. No, it’s so much more, while lessons are very important to improve your language skills so is meeting new people and getting to know them on a more informal level. In school we have at least one social get together a week, generally over food, this week we all had breakfast together.
I think that it is by now very clear that we all love to eat down here in Hastings. It really doesn’t matter what the weather is like, what time of day it is or even what’s on the table we are ready, plate and fork in hand!
Friday is always a good day to get together. The working week is nearly over, or the studying week is. Students, teachers and staff alike are winding down for the weekend (Ssshh, please don’t tell management).
It’s always important to start the day with a good breakfast, it helps keep your energy up and your concentration levels high. The school decided to have breakfast together, as always, it’s a great opportunity to meet students that aren’t in your class. To make plans for the weekend or for the evening.
The breakfast table was practically groaning with all the tasty treats on it. There was plenty of fresh fruit, oranges, strawberries, peaches, and bananas. To balance the healthy fruit we had warm buttery croissants with an amazing homemade, by Frederique our Director of Studies, blackberry jam. There were also some savoury loaves of bread with cheese, ham and olives on. And for those who don’t eat meat, there was delicious bread with cheese and tomatoes.
I mustn’t forget that there were also plenty of different of sweet Danish pastries. Cinnamon swirls, apricot and strawberry topped delights along with apple turnovers. By now my mouth is watering remembering the breakfast.
We decided to play a game where we had to write one interesting thing about ourselves that no one knows about. These were put into a bowl and picked out and read one at a time. We then had to guess the person the sentence related to. This is great fun to play as you really do learn a lot about the people around you. I found out that one of our teachers had just had an exhibition of his art. And one of our students is a well-known race car driver in Japan!
