organized an outing activities on 23/4/2016 at Jordan Valley Park.
On that day, the mentees (S.1H and S.1E students) enjoyed the mass group games prepared by their Buddies (from S.4-5 students).
Although the weather was hot and unstable, the big peace of grass land associated with the effort of the Buddies and the cooperation of S.1 students,
participants were highly involved in the games and had had an exhausting morning.
Class 1H and 1E tried their best to compete against each other in the group games. The competition was tight and finally ended peacefully with a tied result.
