Here all is progressing slowly since have been sick with typhoid which meant that the continual process of converting the curriculum was put on hold this week or so ! ( have a lot to do this weekend to catch up ! ) –
Samantha ( the new volunteer ) seems to be fine in Nazareth , although time is racing on and she has been here almost 2 weeks already and has only another 2 weeks left ! – still no sign of a new volunteer to replace her which is a bit worrying since there is much to do – especially with the new grade 4 teacher !- lots of people write for information however not that many people carry on the process after that ! – I suppose that with the recession it s different to get the funds together for the flight ( although things are very cheap once you get here ! )
It was half term at the school where I work for 4 days this week – which meant that the children had a break however, the purpose of the half term was for the teachers to have training – thus have had a lot of work to do to make two full days training ! – it is necessary however since many teachers ( well all actually ! ) don’t really understand any other technique than writing on the board for pupils to copy ! – even for the 3 year olds !!! – still I suppose you can only go one step at a time !!!
