Hebari and I arrived at the Peer Rope March event, down 3 regular teachers due to illness and other commitments, and wondered how we would structure the afternoon. As the afternoon progressed a whole host of new faces arrived as well as some regulars. Some were coupled and some were alone, all itching to get into a bit of rope.
The first half an hour of each Peer Rope is traditionally spent looking at each other in that “first day of school” manner.
Hebari proposed an impromptu beginners class, and before we knew it , everyone was single column tying each other and getting involved. I also finally figured out the “tricky finger thing” (those who have been taught this simple tie will understand). Suddenly people who didn’t know each other were chatting, laughing and tying each other up. I love that about Peer rope, that no matter who you are, everyone has the one thing in common and I’ve found it to be a great way to meet such a diverse group of new people.
After lunch Hebari demonstrated suspensions on Olivia Fair and myself *woot* which concluded another great event. The people who attend totally make the event and we love being involved in such a fun and rewarding day.
