‘Easter bunny’ makes ‘spe­cial’ egg de­liv­ery

Cyprus Today - - NEWS -

THIR­TEEN young­sters from the Ziyamet Spe­cial Needs School had an eg­gstraor­di­nary meet­ing with the “Easter bunny” as part of a sea­sonal cel­e­bra­tion or­gan­ised by the Mak­ing a Dif­fer­ence (MAD) sup­port group.

The en­counter came dur­ing a party or­gan­ised on Mon­day at the Çelebi Gar­den Ho­tel in Mehmetçik, at which the chil­dren played games in­clud­ing pass the par­cel and showed off their hula hoop skills af­ter the helpers and teach­ers had shown theirs.

Lunch was fol­lowed by an Easter egg each for all of the school’s pupils — handed to those at the party by the “Easter bunny” and a pen­guin-cos­tumed as­sis­tant — pro­vided by John Kirk and mem­bers of the Ayios Niko­laos Golf Club, at Dheke­lia.

The fun-packed fes­tiv­i­ties ended on the dance floor, the young par­ty­go­ers play­ing with bal­loons and one dis­play­ing her dance tal­ents, from bal­let to tra­di­tional folk.

Claire Lamb, of MAD, said: “At the end . . . the chil­dren all clam­bered on to the bus to take them back to school — tired but very, very happy. Thank you to ev­ery­one who helped make this day such a ter­rific event for our won­der­ful chil­dren of Ziyamet.”
