Settling In

Wednesday 5 July 2017

It’s safe to say we have all settled into our classes and the teaching and learning is well underway! Today Annie, Rebekah and I took Class 7 to the science labs to continue with our lessons on the human body and keeping healthy. The students and teachers explained to us that they love using the science labs so I think the lesson went down a treat! We decided to show the students the effects of sugary drinks on our teeth by boiling a bottle of diet coke and a bottle of coke. The smiles and shocked faces from the students showed us that they were learning something–as well as “havin’ a bit of craic.”

In the afternoon we had conversation classes with our Year 10 and Year 12 classes. Today we talked about our hobbies and interests. The boys explained to us the rules of cricket while the girls showed us some traditional Indian dances. (NOTE: Don’t talk about Pakistan beating India!!!) The students in the conversation classes are definitely becoming more confident which is great to see.

Christine had arranged for Semeda Steves to speak to us about her work and her vision for the future. A truly amazing and inspirational woman who brings so much joy and hope to the woman of India through her work with Christian Aid and the local churches. Hopefully, Semeda will team up with the Saphara team in the future!

We’re really looking forward to the week ahead and the weekend activities in Mussourie!
