At the end the of first term shortly before the Christmas break the teachers of the AEFV in Portugal organised a fun activity at school called Secret Friend. Each participant member of the staff got a secret friend, whom they were supposed to send messages and small tokens of their affection and friendship. Some tutor teachers also organised the very same activity with their classes. During the Christmas lunch at the end of the term the mystery was unveiled and everybody got to know who their secret friend was.

Much to their surprise some colleagues received wonderful comics customized with the app Pixton. Pixton introduces the world to Click-n-Drag Comics and gives anyone the power to create awesome comics on the web. Amazing characters, dynamic panels, props, speech bubbles and other aspects of a comic can be controlled in an intuitive click-n-drag motion.

It was great fun being able to watch ourselves as a comic strip character and realise how other people see us and admire us while performing a creative task.
