Day 2 - Mon. 16th Feb
Today was our first day of lesson observing, mentoring and training. After an early rise with Alison kindly knocking on everyone’s door to make sure we were awake, we had breakfast and then got ready to leave. The taxis arrived on time to take us to our first school, Children Happy; however, our taxi driver didn’t exactly know how to get to our first school and the journey was an interesting stop start, ask how to get there experience.
After finally arriving we were greeted by the head of the school and teachers. Lesson observations went very well and the children almost seemed used to having us in their lessons. The training session which followed was very good with a lot of teachers attending. After a very long journey stuck in traffic coming back to our hotel and a few near misses with the tuk tuks, we managed to get back in one piece and went straight into our debriefing. The Impact teachers are so motivated and passionate and are happy to see evidence of our previous trip being implemented by their mentees.
