Rain hats or sun hats?

No-one at the Singapore Australian International School would have believed that their uniforms would end up in the remotest schools in the mountains of East Timor.  But thanks to Monica Mayer and her team at the Singapore AIS, the 5000 uniform pieces that they sent over continue to be distributed to kids who have never had uniforms before.

The children wearing the red t-shirts are at Macalaco school and those in yellow at Maucale – both schools are about a 3-4 hour rough drive from Dili.  I am told though that the hats are used to keep off the rain during the long wet season – not the sun.
