Happy Australia Day!

Here at CCEB we had a little Australia Day celebration yesterday 🙂

We held a dress-up competition for the best Aussie sheila (Australian slang word for ‘a woman’) and the best Aussie bloke (a man).

The Aussie fashion parade is just about to begin.

The students took the challenge seriously and came to school dressed up as… Australians 😉 See the photo below to check out how they went 😉

The best Aussie sheila award went to contestant number 5, Laetitia from Intermediate A, and Mateo, contestant number 1, won the best Aussie bloke award. Some of us here had a problem as how to classify contestant number 4, Gabriel from Pre-Int A. There was a bit of a confusion as some of us thought Gabriel could actually compete for both prizes LOL. Congratulations to the winners! Good onya guys!

CCEB and Lake67 staff did their best to look very Australian too!

Thanks a lot guys! It was such a fun day!

  1. ‘Happy Australia Day’ and how wonderful that we all live in or can visit a peaceful and beautiful country. Well done all those who donned Aussie outfits and especially Carolina, Mateo and Bella who looked great as the first Australians! Excellent!!!
    Yes, I wonder whose nails they are??? Hmmm….. 🙂

  2. What awesome photos! They are very Australian. We had a nice Australia Day’s Eve at CCEB but I had a boring Australia Day at home. I just stayed in all day ;-(

  3. Everyone was celebrating Australia Day.
    The costumes and beautifully paint were absolutely wonderful. Gabriel was very funny.
    The teachers’ costumes were also really awesome.
    Everyone looked really funny!!

  4. I was surprised by their costumes. They looked like Oz. I think my country’s flag of Japan is boring, but Australia’s flag is cute.
    When I saw the Australian flag pictures on items like T-shirts, hats, small flags, glasses, swimming togs, beach towels in the shops, it was so pretty.

  5. Everyone looks like they are having fun!! I like the muscle boy. Krystyna’s fingers are very beautiful!!!Happy Australia Day!!!!!
