After the individualized meetings. there was a parents' workshop. After some announcements, the teachers led the parents in a few group activities that the children do at school. The pre-school teachers coached the parents in joining paper strips of different colours in patters to create a paper garland. The primary school teachers played a word game, to show how even a practice exercise can be interesting.
