Today was PTA day (parent-teacher-something), and involves parents of students coming in to watch the teachers teach them. Thankfully I was asked only to do one of these and it went rather well. At lunch all students head home for the day, but the teachers and parents get together in the gym for a game of whatever they decide. Today it was volleyball, so after lunch I headed to the gym with everyone to find out what this game was going to be. At first glance it appeared to be volleyball, as the nets were already in place.
My JTE: "We will play a kind of volleyball."
Me: "Ok... what's that?"
My JTE: "It's the volleyball."
Me: "It looks like a giant, foam pear..."
My JTE (really happy): "Yes!"
So I spent a couple of hours playing this "type of volleyball", which along with the giant foam pear for a ball, had some odd, odd rules. As soon as I understood the rules properly it was really good fun... it's shame it took me most of the match to realise what they were! And of course, because of the shape of the "ball" the darn thing was bouncing all over the place!
