This morning we had the privilege to visit another CCAP school, one in Kchele, on our way to Ikwele. It was encouraging to see the enthusiasm of the Headmaster there as he showed us around the grounds and the progress being made and explaining the plans for the future of the school.
After our visit, it was off to Ikwele for our last morning of work. Once another delicious breakfast by Dorthy was cleaned up, the task for the morning was to finish parging the last classroom of the three. With so much help from the community it was a quick job and there was time to get started on the teacher’s room before lunchtime.
After lunch, we interacted with most of the students of Ikwele while we waited for the closing ceremonies to start. There were turns being taken on a bicycle. The poor thing didn’t know what hit it when Barrie and Darrell hopped on at the same time and went for a spin. Some of us threw a ball around with the children and were impressed to see the throwing arm on some of them.
At the closing ceremonies, we were treated to a few dances from the students and speeches from the PTA thanking us for coming to help work on the Ikwele project. We were also invited to share a couple dances and a song. We should have known that the rains were coming again, because we needed to move back inside the school for the gifts that were given to us and a closing prayer by Jen.
Then the team began the drive to Mphue with much anticipation of their upcoming game drive at the South Lalaungua Wild Life park !!!
