Day 4 of the Schoolies In Uganda (VOH)

Today has been pretty a busy day for the Schoolies Team and i , as early as 8:55 am they came for me at the Village to take them in the different schools where the Village children study from.
We started with Pre-School (Hope Land) and interacted with the children and it was really a wonderful experience to be with the little ones at their School.
After Pre-School we headed to Jinja Christian School where the Acting Head teacher Tr Jonathan took us around in the different classes and The Schoolies were so happy to share with the children, looking through their work and reading bible stories. We peeped at Joy primary but the children had finished thier end of year papers and they were home.
From Jinja Christian Sch, we went to Hope Community High School where only Senior Six students were at School because others finished their papers a week back. The Director Robert K gave a brief history of the School and how donations from Australia have helped them excel especially in Science subjects.One thing which suprised the Team was that in most Ugandan Schools, the Teacher: learners' ratio can be over 1:100 which here we see  as something very normal.Some of the Team members donated books to the school and promised to be in touch with the school.
After the Schoolies' tour they headed back to Suubi house for lunch and then to the Village to build house 10 after lunch.We are really for this Team's work.
Another activity of the day was to give some clothes (2bags)  from our orange container to Miracle orphanage whose dormitories caught fire and their belongings got burnt, this we did me and Robert K. 
That was our day..... view this in photos
