New Term

29 Nov

 

The beginning of the state school term has just begun (properly after consecutive holidays). This always leads to our quietest period at the center for a few reasons. Firstly, some of our students have progressed to grade 7 so will be attending state school both morning and afternoon (we will have new younger students joining our classes), and they will only now come to us for evening classes. Secondly children have to get used to studying for a full day again after 2 months of only doing half-days. Thirdly family members, who are used to the children being at home part of the time to help clean and cook, have to adjust to their absence again. This means we spend a lot of time out in the community talking to families and explaining the benefits of returning to classes along with offering extra school trips and food drops (as incentives) to the children coming in regularly again.

We also get the opportunity to do some staff training/refreshing and introduce some new elements to our structure, such as extended circle time with our youngest students and more emphasis on group work and presentations with our older ones. We hope we will have a full and productive year to come!

    Hello, everybody in the Goodville Center, S- ville.

    Many thanks for all the nice photos of happy children. We do really long back to you all, but unfortuneally both me and Sune have some operations
    in front of us, so I am sorry to say we can´t visit Cambodia in January as we had hoped to do.

    All the best to you all!

    Lot´s of Love,

    Mona & Sune
