It's been a busy week for everyone at FlexiSAF but I'm sure that's expected by now. Luckily, we understand that busy doesn't always mean we can't have fun too.Speaking of fun, here's what our picnic from the other week was like:

We had Our Children's Day Giveaway this week too. It was our second ever social media giveaway (after our world stationary day giveaway) and it went well. The contest ran from Saturday till Tuesday. School children were asked to send in pictures holding up creative signs with reasons why they think technology is important in the classroom/schools. Some of the entries were really thoughtful:

The winner was announced on Tuesday evening. She's a student of Pace Setters Academy Abuja. We liked her sign and the 4 points she gave so she's been invited to our office next week with a staff from her school to redeem her prize: free internet for her school and an educational tablet for herself.

Follow us on Instagram and Twitter to get updates as they happen.We all took the day off on Monday to mark Democracy Day so it was 'technically' a 4-day work week.
