Boxing Class

We have recently been lucky enough to have some boxing classes at the center. Patrick has been here to teach few beginner sessions and hopes to run a few more. The children have loved it and pick it up very quickly. It is a disciplined sport and builds the confidence of those involved (strictly boxing the pads and not each other!!).

The children have loved having a new challenge, and some of them are getting pretty good. As you can imagine in the heat it is also pretty tiring, so it makes for quieter classes for the teachers afterward! A big thank you to Patrick to take the time to come in and we look forward to the next class.

Fun in the Sun!

It was everyone’s favorite time of year again, beach time! 50 of us, including some of our older students to help out, packed into vans and onto motorbikes and headed to the Small Beach Bar. We spent the first half hour doing our regular beach clear up (though fantastically the whole area was cleaner than normal already), splitting into 3 groups to get the widest area covered.

Then it was time for the fun to begin with everyone racing into the water with life vests and rubber rings to wreck havock! It was awesome, I think some of them could have stayed playing forever!

Then to revive us all Mom and the staff had prepared fried rice with chicken and vegetables, for them all, delicious and nutritious! Then to top it all off Henrik and Mom brought everyone ice-cream. A very happy trip to say the least!
