Every term we shall gather information to share with you on the growth of the school; and how the building itself is coming together.
May this inspire you to become more involved, not only as a sponsor-there are other avenues which you can develop connection:
fundraising in your community, volunteering your skills and trade;
or penpal with the children and teachers to gain a wider perspective of the day-to-day life in another country.
Last term was the opening of the nursery school. It was a successful week, and the children settled in wonderfully.
Although the staircase is incomplete, classes are continuing upstairs in the afternoons.
Every day the school are aiming to push higher. The register is going normally and the lesson plans are working smoothly too. The teachers are learning, and implementing the Child Protection Policy-with sensitization of parents getting involved in their children’s education affairs, to assist the child in preparation for the future.
The teachers, are really happy working with the project. They attended college for their first training session in the Easter holidays, which they thoroughly enjoyed and took away with them many encouragements. They attend college during the term holidays.
