Day 1: On Campus Preparation

We arrived at school at 8am today, prepared for a day full of informative presentations, traditional Fijian food, and a Rugby 101 class.

We started our day by with presentations that we had prepared covering topics such as Fiji Demographics, Coral Reefs, Dance, Tattoos and Piercings, the Kava Ceremony and much more. The presentations allowed us to gain a glimpse into activities, sights, and traditions that we will be experiencing hands on during the duration of our trip.

Once the presentations finished we broke off into groups. Luis, Matheus, Pedro, GianLuca, Yoora, and Hitomi made their way to the kitchen to prepare some tradition Fijian dishes and drinks that Luis talked about during his presentation on Fijian Food.

Aside from cooking we also took part in a Rugby 101 class that was conducted by some fellow Ross teachers. Rugby is the most popular sport in Fiji and we will be watching a Rugby game on March 12th and possibly participating so practicing now was definitely necessary!

To conclude our day we had our Farwell ceremony at 3:00. Luis and his crews amazing dishes where served and families of students gathered together to enjoy.

We are all so excited for our fabulous Fiji Journey to begin. Stay tuned for more blog updates and photos of our adventures!
