Fabulous to hear from our ‘Nepal Trippers’ yesterday as they completed their visit to our school. One described it as “one of the best days of my life”, another spoke of the “impressive school”, “gentleness of the teachers, children and relatives” and the “underlying self-discipline”. She also talked of the “amazing, inspirational, yet modest mentor” that they have in Devi Prasad and the “determined, committed and far sighted” head teacher – so it seems that the school is in safe hands!
It was great for us to see the new science room that has just been added to the school. It is a wonderful addition but is still very short on equipment at this stage. That will be one of LEARN’s next priorities – to provide the equipment that they will need but it is wonderful that, thanks to our supporters in Bamford, these children are able to learn the subject in a scientific environment.
Our ‘trippers’ were treated to some entertainment by the children and it was lovely to see the photos that the school had posted themselves on their Facebook page (some of which are included in this blog) along with the message “thank you to all helping hands”.
We look forward to our next trustees meeting when the ‘trippers’ have returned home. To know and understand first hand what will be best for our school and to work towards providing that will be a real honour.
Our ‘trippers’ took with them a small plaque for the school. We, at LEARN, can’t thank our supporters enough for providing the means by which these children are able to gain their “wings to fly”. THANK YOU!
