I was watching the folk today and it is interesting to see the differences between them all.
Everyone seems to have a different interpretation as to what is suitable sports clothes. There are kids running around in jeans, winter weight long sleeve shirts, long heavy denim skirts, good casual clothes, joggers, sports clothes, etc. But what seems to really matter is that none of them actually care what anyone else is wearing. They still all get along together and play the game (which happens to be Frisbee and tiggy)?
The families are all different, come from different places and have different lives with the main thing in common being that they all belong to the same school. No one is outcast because they are different unless they choose to do it to themself.
While at activity day the parents will sit, craft, chat, share a cuppa and relax while the teachers take over their job for the day.
I personally like to craft, occasionally chat with friends and take some down time while the kids learn on their own.
Sometimes I wouldn't mind if they offered something for the adults to do, and I guess in a way they do. They provide an environment where the parents feel safe enough to let there kids go off on their own to classes and ever since I dragged that first table out, they now provide tables so people can craft or do stuff while the kids are in classes.
