Kids4Peace “Roots” met last week, formerly known as Continuation 2, and the kids could not have been more excited to get back in touch after a long summer away from each other. The meeting took place at the Anglican School in Jerusalem, a familiar locale where Bisli and Bamba eating comes naturally to Kids4Peace. After taking a few minutes to mingle, Continuation Coordinators Naomi and Reeham led icebreakers as an excuse for the kids to practice their English and hear about each others summers.
Counselor Guy Saar Ruso then led the group through a storytelling activity, in which the kids participated so enthusiastically they could almost not speak through the roaring laughter. The evening culminated with the annual “Commercial Break”, as Roots divided into groups to create skits that will act as commercials to encourage First Year participants to stay in the program for years to come. The competition was tough, but Souwr, Miral, Carla, Tamara, Thelet, and Angela’s group won the prize and will be performing their commercial this week!
