This month the school celebrated the yearly softball tournament
called N.U.T.S (Niamey Universal
Tournament of Softball) that is held between schools & embassies
in Niger and Burkina Faso. Kids here dont have many opportunities
to play team sports, so this softball tournament gives both kids
and adults an opportunity to show skill and sportsmanship. It
is a weekend event with lots of softball, hotdogs, hamburgers,
American sodas, and this year there was even some cotton candy!
The boys school had 4 different teams this yearone
was competitive and 3 were just for fun! The competitive
team won in their category, and the for fun teams
had lots of fun but did not come home with a trophy.
