The Sime Game activity was enacted on the top of the bluestone retaining wall at the front of the school grounds by a girl of African background. Small flower heads from an indigenous bush were held in the hand and placed in a 'pattern' of sorts according to what appeared to be a counting out type of rhyme (Language: 'African') gently 'sung' by the girl. There was picking up, placing down, of pieces, etc. There were no other children in close vicinity.
