Happy First Day of the Month.
Our Schools are trialing an old way of learning to write in the childrens first year – with chalk and boards. Chalk boards. Firstly the child can copy shapes with big strokes and secondly the teacher with a large class can see all the chalk boards at a glance from the front but still walk around for all the individual help.
Peery’s first day at School.
Children don’t usually start school till age 5 or six but there is no set rule and remember that ‘school’ is new and OWNED by our community.
Nang’s daughter Peery is four years and seven months but so eager to go to school.
Look through Peery’s day – in the line up Peery is the one with her hair in bunches and a hair band.
Many of you now know ‘Nang’s story’ – (If not or if you are new to the site, you wont regret looking through the section to your left on the website screen named ‘Nangs Story” – In deed this next set of photos is not only here in the Blog but it is today added to ‘Nangs Story’.
The fact is that time and time again Nang should not have survived. Its not only a miracle time and again that Nang is alive and a wonderful mother but Peery too is lucky to be alive.
In the photos you see Peery’s very first morning at school, being cared for by another old friend, Chanthay (brick teddy bear girl in sections re village children).
Then to finish there are the photos of Peery arriving home to show her mum, Nang, her chalkboard – and TOGETHER they will learn because as for all our mothers, there was no school for Nang.
If nothing else, these last few photos of Nang with Peery are VERY rewarding.
And now, at the end of the day, Peery, proud Peery, returns home to Nang with her chalk board. (Remember all this last let of ‘Peery’ photos are now added to ‘Nangs Story’ in the sections to your left.
In two weeks time we’ll post photos and a story of things for sale in our villages. John.
