Training for 16 of our teachers

We believe that building schools for kids is essential, but not enough by itself.  Many teachers in Timor haven’t had the chance of proper training and this is something we’ve been wanting to help with.  Finally after lots of work from Jenny Coles, we’ve arranged for 4 teachers from each of our schools to attend a great 2 day workshop next week.  The sessions will focus on teaching numeracy and literacy, with each school taking away lesson plans and 4 sets of beautiful bright wall charts and teaching games.    For schools with bare walls and little more than paper and pens this will be an amazing addition.  Photos of the sessions to follow next week – the one below is one I love from Ostico school.
