Smyrna Mission School - Sports Day - 25 March 2011

Opening of the sports day- Pastor Dayalan(Maskeliya) and Pastor Ahamath(Welimada) hoisting the national flag as the the national anthem is being played in the background. 

 Swedish flag flaps in the wind along with the Sri Lankan flag and parents of the Pre-School kids on the school balcony waiting to see the kids performance.
Standing at attention to the national anthem.

 Drill display by the Nuwara Eliya Mission School kids and Jayshre teacher playing a bass drum that is quite bigger than her :)  It looked a bit like an African tribal dance!
 Pre-School kids doing the lime race and Odin right in front!
 Drill display by the Welimada school kids.  Balloons were tied to their hands and they moved gracefully to the music that was played.  Every eye watching them held a tear.  It was so heart warming to see the dedication of the teachers.

 Girls of the Welimada School. This girl was the only girl who came in a wheel chair and has the most beautiful smile.
Welimada children settling in their house.

 A happy group of kids - fit for a toothpaste add, I bet!
 Highlight of the day-fancy dress parade by the Pre-Schoolers.  Here two rabbits, doctor and nurse, a policeman, a priest, a fairy and a vegetable selling lady pose for a photograph.
 The cutest gypsy girl - Renee walking the ramp!
 Our shy little bride - Yashika.

 Are we ready?  Oooooooh yesssssssssss!
 Listening carefully to instructions...
