The English teacher, Monica (left) and the Kiswahili teacher, Roslind took down copious notes while I addressed the Journalism Club
On Wednesday afternoon, Sharda, Sue and I attended the school clubs again. Sharda had projects for the Science Club, I'd been asked by the Journalism Club to present a project and Sue spent the time closeted in the Head Teacher's office discussing various things. My presentation entailed explaining to the learners what journalism is. Quite a number of them think a journalist only needs a camera around his/her neck to be successful. Explaining to them that to be a successful journalist takes hard work, dedication, a strong sense of observation and a great deal of creativity! You also need a love of the written word. Part of my talk included an interview. I interviewed Sue who posed as a shopkeeper in the village.
Afterwards, when the children had returned to their classes, the teachers, Monica and Roslynd asked if I would help them with putting on a Passion play for Easter. Thank goodness for my dear sister, Rose in the UK who has sent me some good pointers and websites.
Afterwards while walking through the school gardens we were pleased to see the above sign. It had been created by the Wildlife Club: the words fashioned from soda bottle tops
