So finally we went to the school today and had our first day of classes, and it was amazing! 😀

We reached the school at around 8 am and were walking around, and all of a sudden the school bell rang and little children started running out of their classes. They were heading towards us. In the beginning, they just came and greeted us and were shaking hands, but later the younger ones came and started hugging us and it was so sweet!! 😀 We were all surrounded by them. It was their way of welcoming us and it was really nice.

After that, we had a meeting with the Headmaster of the school and the Ministry of Education, where we told them about our project, and they said we could start from today. And there was a slight change of plans, like we can only teach for 3 days, but for 8 hours (4 classes, 2 hours each) on the last 2 days. We taught for 4 hours today (2 classes) and are very tired, so I can’t even think how the next two days are going to be like. But at the end of the day, it feels great when you know the children are enjoying  your classes, I mean it encourages us more to come back the next day and spend more time with them.

I can’t wait to see the kids again tomorrow. We will be deciding our lesson plans for tomorrow after this.
