We just returned from our trip to Jubilee and visit the school! We were so, so happy to see all the progress that had been made at the school including the addition of 6 new classrooms and 2 (wait for it, wait for it) flushing toilets!! At year one of the school there wasn’t even water!
We were able to match our talented team member’s skill sets to needs at the school, making for a productive week! Lesson plans were created, ideas were shared, classrooms were swept, and lots of hugs were dispensed.
7 wonderful teachers, 2 interns, and interpreters began the school year last week welcoming 100 students and two, all-day first grade classes. We can’t wait to see how the year unfolds!
