[Week 21: March 11 – 15, 2019]
Back to school after that exciting sports week, we had normal schedule back. We experienced again interesting lessons with our grade 5 and 6 students and organized the library where we can already see a progress, but there is still a lot to do until the end of the school year.
We had a lovely time during the storytelling in daycare and kindergarten. This week, we had company from one of the other volunteers from our German organization. Her name is Anis and she is working in an orphanage in Bacolod City, which is about one hour away from Silay City. She was curious about our new work at school. We had a great time together and the kids liked listening to her story.
During their Physical Education (P.E.) class last Wednesday, we started to introduce handball to the junior high school students, which we will cover for the rest of the school year. Few weeks ago, the kids asked us what sport we did back in Germany and when we answered handball, they were quite confused because they have never heard of handball before. So, we started to introduce it to them this week, explaining the sport and its rules. After that, we showed some videos of how the game looks like and their reactions were gorgeous. You could really see and hear their excitement when they finally knew what handball is and we hope they will have a lot of fun playing it in the next weeks – because we are really excited.
See you next week! 👋
