Promoting Peace and Friendship with RocketWorld

So, there's this event called RocketWorld which is organised by The International Society of Greater Manchester. I've just known about it two days ago when my friend asked me to be a volunteer. Why not? I thought. I have plenty of free time, anyway.

The Volunteers
On Tuesday at 7 a.m. we made our way to Maxwell building, spending about thirty minutes walking in the showering rain. A black cab picked us up at 8 a.m. and I met two other girls from Saudi Arabia and Greece. The cab drove us to International Society office where Sam, the coordinator, greeted us. There were also Manuel from Spain, Vasiliki from Cyprus, Yidnek from Ethiopia, and three other Chinese volunteers.

The event involves going to primary school around Greater Manchester and Liverpool and introducing the countries to the pupils. Each volunteer represent their countries and the kids would come and ask things about that country. There's also an enormous earth ball set up in the middle of the hall which is the most attractive thing to the kids. 

Yesterday's event was held at Webster Primary School. It was my first time and I enjoyed it to the heart. It was tiring as the pupils were so eager to learn and asked so many questions, yet it was so much fun at the same time. I got to tell them about the thousands of Island we have, endemic fauna and flora, as well as taught them how to play Lompat Tali which they enjoyed so much! :D

I definitely want to participate again in the near future, insha Allah.
