Students attending the adult English classes at Coffs Harbour Community College went to the Dorrigo National Park on the mid north coast of NSW in Australia, for the end-of-year party in December, 2006. We had many activities and games which people from many different countries and cultures could enjoy. Games are a great way to cross language barriers and bring people together.

These schoolchildren were skipping beside the ramparts of the Alhambra in Spain. I took these pictures on a visit to that wonderful moorish palace in 2004.

Hop Scotch

A truly timeless and universal game, which requires only a flat piece of ground and some stones. These kids are on Artauro Island, off the coast from Dili, in East Timor.

I watched these boys in Dili, East Timor, for over an hour – just pulling each other around on this palm leaf.
