The happy, hazy, lazy days of summer a la Bucharest
Staff and children playing in the pool
Summer in Bucharest is at its scorching best or worst? So today, the St Margaret’s team decided a little cooling splash around session in a water filled play pool was just what everyone needed.
Some of the more active children, Rafi, Darius, Maria, Ionela and Alexandra who enjoy splashing around in their bath spent a lovely outdoorsy day in and out of the pool.
Some social work and therapy students on their summer work placement joined in, forgetting about work and taking part with the children, happily even splashing around and getting wet. Rafael was, as usual, the first one to jump in the pool and try to swim like a little frog, splashing everybody around, while little Maria kept skidding in the pool and making silly faces. She really enjoys playing in the water and loves to be surrounded by friends having fun even more. Darius, on the other hand, did not seem very happy at first, as he doesn’t fancy pool games. We are gradually trying to get him used to playing and to other children’s energetic activities. It was very good for him to be part of such a lovely day, even if he got splashed by the others who were trying to get his attention, he just smiled. Ionela and Maria were also very active but Ionela seemed thrilled just to see Rafi splashing everybody and making them laugh with joy. Rafi even teased Alexandra by touching him with wet hands and although she seemed annoyed at first, it was not for long. Everyone started laughing and continued to play other games near the pool.
We had a very happy day, bringing joy to the children through such a simple fun filled way. The pool will remain in our yard for the coming weeks, offering more opportunities for fun and games.
