Hello everyone. Another update from team Malawi here.
Sorry for lack of photos, Internet is really struggling here so trying to find enough bandwidth for photos is hard. But, delighted to say that the cases and resources have all turned up except one which we are assured is on its way.
And today we had our first day at school which was just wonderful. The children were so receptive and enthusiastic to all the lessons and activities, even the ones that maybe weren’t pitched quite right.
Everyone had a go at doing some teaching, either from the front or in small groups; and we all loved having the chance to chat with the children and get to know them a bit.
The walk to and from the school was really good as well and although very uphill on the way there it was definitely worth it for the time at school as a result, and all the happy hellos from people we passed. Everyone is so friendly here, so different from back home where people would think we were mad if we were so smiley and saying hello to everyone!
There has been a lot of learning on our part from today and as a result a lot of planning and reviewing lessons this evening.
But also some nice downtime relaxing by the lake and watching the sun go down.
Now it is time for dinner and then help Casey celebrate her birthday under African skies
Looking forward to more special times tomorrow.
Love to you all from us all
