Lots of Helpers

We have been really lucky recently to be joined at the center by some friends who have come to run activities with the children and generally help us out.

Patrick returned to teach some boxing classes. The children love it and learned very quickly. He also brought us new toothbrush and toothpaste supplies to ensure our kids have the cleanest teeth around.

Charlie, Tara and Jake have been here, helping us to get some of the final touches done to the center. They are also building us a Wendy house and painting a mural to brighten up the playground.

Istvan, a teacher in town, has been doing some geography lessons and passing on some of his favorite games and activities to our teachers.

We have even more visitors arriving through February and March so it should be fun few months!

Christmas Party and Hopes for the New Year

SAMSUNG CSC

We had our Christmas party last week. It was great fun! The staff had to work very hard as sadly a few of them have been sick so unable to work. It didn’t stop any of them having a good time though. The layout of the new center meant we had way more room to play games and for people to watch. It was lovely to have our first big party there and to see many of the faces who helped to build it.

We played lots of silly games, had song, dance and play performances, and presents for our students, along with apples, cake and soft drinks for everyone in attendance.

Looking ahead for the new year we hope to complete the playground and garden. We want to continue to encourage the adults of the area to utilize the space, especially the library and to continue to make sure the children have a fun place to learn. Wishing everyone the best for 2016!
