Kenyan Penpals

During the October holidays Ms Scanlan received an email from Lomayana school, full of wonderful messages and pictures for the class. It is always lovely to see the beautiful designs and drawings that they send and it’s great to hear back from them all and see how they are getting on.

Here is a photo of the class with their messages.

Visit from French Teachers from Cannes

This week Suzy Drogy-Meier and Yann Gueyffier from Cannes came to visit our school on  Tuesday and Wednesday. They really enjoyed their visit and loved meeting the class and all the staff. They visited lots of classes and enjoyed working with the children, having conversations in French, reading books and helping our class write to their new pen pals in French. We’re looking forward to working together this year.

Breadwinner

On Wednesday 29th August, the Primary 7s went to see a film called Breadwinner.

It was about a young girl called Parvana who lived in Kabul, the capital of  Afghanistan, in around late 2001. Since she is a girl, she does not have the same rights that boys have. When her father is taken to prison, she cuts her hair, and pretends to be a boy, so she can be the breadwinner for her family.

It was a very heartwarming film and it made us realise how lucky we are, and that we should be very grateful for what we have.

Emmy – I thought it was a very good film and the animation was beautiful.

Ronan – It was very interesting and it made me feel lucky for what I have.

Junias – I would give it 4/5 stars.

Tryphena – I thought it was very moving.

Maasai Village Meeting

We have been finding out about the Maasai people and the impact of tourism in their region. We had a village meeting and everyone had to play a role. There were village elders, park rangers, hotel workers, young maasai, shopkeepers and ecolodge owners. We found out about the lives of the people and then had a meeting to explain what the problems were. There were some really good presentations and lots of questions too.
