giving Newt a hefty shove

Spoiler:
I was thinking ... Newt gets knocked over, they both laugh, Porpentina helps him up, one of them makes a comment about making a good team or something like that, and The End! What do you think?

Yes, it was fun. I'm already thinking about improvements for next year!

I had to leave the computer for a while, and now I suppose you are in bed, but we are very close to finishing the story.  

I wanted to ask how this Passion Day works. If I understand it well, it means that every teacher chooses a topic he / she feels passionate about but which isn't part of the curriculum and holds a day-long workshop for which students can sign up in advance and then each student spends the day at the workshop he / she has signed up for. It sounds very interesting. What other workshops were there?

Yes, I had to go to bed.  

That's pretty much how Passion Day worked, except they started off by asking the students what they were passionate about, and what they would like to spend a day learning about. Then they asked teachers what we'd be interested in offering, and tried to match them up. There were a huge range of workshops offered. Cooking was really popular, so there were lots of different options there - BBQ skills, cooking for real men, cooking for college, baking, Italian cooking etc. Most of those workshops took place in the teachers' homes, as there are not enough cooking facilities on campus for all those different groups. Another large group were doing wilderness survival skills, and there were two separate Amazing Races going on. There were also a huge range of sports workshops, and my son actually spent the day learning archery, which he really enjoyed. As well, there were workshops on photography, Minecraft, coding, papercrafts, sewing, Sherlock Holmes, petcare, and a group who spent the day as medical interns at a nearby hospital. It was a mammoth undertaking, but it all seemed to go well on Friday. It will be interesting to get back to school tomorrow and start to hear some feedback.

How about finishing with the unicorn stepping to them and making some kind of last contribution? 

That's very interesting, Verity. It must have been a lot of work but an amazing project as well. Congratulations on the successful workshops!

Newt smiled


Yes, it was a lot of work for the main organising team, especially as this was the first time the school has done this. Next year should be easier!

He drew closer


Spoiler:
A kiss, for example? It may be banal, but they seem to be very close to it.  Or maybe we could leave it open ending by only "suggesting" the possibility of a kiss. Or they could kiss and the unicorn could come to investigate what's going on.
