LSI Vancouver took part in the 2015 World Student Day held Friday June 12, 2015 at Robson Centre. This event brought together many ESL schools and allowed their students a chance to meet and share their experiences in a fun filled day. All the students who attended were given a ticket for a free slice of pizza and drink. Students mingled with fellow students and stopped at different activity tables being run by the participating schools. A live band played on a stage and many students took the floor to show off their dance moves.
Schools tried to attract and entertain students to their tables, in many creative ways. Free pictures in provided costumes and ping pong matches. A Canadian classic, shooting plastic hockey pucks at a goalie in net as well as a giant Jenga set of blocks that once built, challenged students to see how many pieces they could remove before it collapsed.
This year at the LSI table students took turns launching ping pong balls into plastic cups. Each student was given 3 chances to shoot a ball into a group of plastic cups. All the students that stopped by to try their luck were given a little prize for taking part and all the successful students won a LSI backpack if one of their 3 shots landed in a cup.
The event started at noon and lasted until 5 pm. As you can see from the pictures everyone enjoyed the day and left with some more fond memories of Vancouver.
