Arabic Takes Home the Gold
Location: Saint Michael’s College
What the Arabic Academy did today: Welcome to Week Three at the Arabic Academy! Students had an exciting weekend filled with fun activities. On Saturday, the Academy gathered for a barbecue, with all the food cooked by students. The spread included burgers, chicken, hummus, baba ganoush, salads, and harissah for dessert. It was a perfect summer evening!
For their nighttime activity, students participated in “Rock Night.” Each living group prepared a song and performance in Arabic. I acted as one of the judges and was blown away by their excitement and creativity! On Sunday, the Academy geared up for Field Day., a day full of competitions between Academies. Events included basketball, Jenga, drawing, plank wars, animal walk relays, volleyball, soccer, and food challenges.
The Arabic Academy took home the Gold and finished in 1st place! It was an exciting day all around.
