Gift exchange.... everyone brought a wrapped gift... novice and school staff. The gifts were all numbered and placed on tables.
|The novice sat in lines according to the classrooms. It was a time to have fun and take pictures too!|
|The novice picking a number out of a bowl, then going over to the tables in the back of the photo, to find the corresponding gift.|
|By class, novice were called to the front and could then draw a small piece of paper out of a bowl, with a number on it. Since each gift had a number on it, they went off in search of the present with that number.|
The gift exchange took about two hours and was so well organized. I was very impressed with just how smoothly the whole celebration went.
