After a much more reasonable 7am wakeup call we all got up rearing to go, ready for a fun filled day of anticipation and excitement as we made our way to SNEHA school.
Arriving in our vikrams we were greeted by the lovely Dr. Reeta, director of Sneha school and her son Ron who then guided us and directed us towards our assigned classes which were class four, five and seven.
A small classroom filled with vibrant, enthusiastic and eager students immediately made us feel at ease as we began to unpack our well–prepared resources and begin our variety of lessons with the students.
The bright and happy faces of the children as the lesson progressed reassured us that they were thoroughly enjoying the lesson and were so very grateful to have us in their class with them.
The conversation classes with both class 10 and 12 also proved very much a success where we were able to discover and find out about out the students school life in Dehradun and their hopes and aspirations for the future. The conversation flowed naturally with the students as their bilingual ability allowed them to communicate effectively with us in what was for most their second language.
Collectively we left on a high on the success of today’s lessons and filled with much excitement, we cannot wait to be back for day two in SNEHA school tomorrow.
