As you can see, the new school was recently painted both inside and out. The teachers and students are thrilled with the new look! The school is now stocked with new tables, chairs, exercise books, pencils, art supplies, and soccer balls. The lunch program is still going strong, and the students are reportedly doing very well in class! We couldn't be happier with the progress the children have made so far.
We are currently working with Teacher Mary and Teacher Jane to find a new full-time, recently-graduated teacher to assist with new lesson plans and teaching the children in the older class. With just over 50 students currently enrolled at the school, both teachers are excited by the prospect of some extra help!
The construction of the school seems to have sparked a new kind of positive energy in the community of Longonot. Parents of students are becoming more involved with the school, and plans to build a new community center nearby are underway. We are very happy to see that our efforts have helped the community to this extent. We look forward to seeing more improvements and development projects in the near future!
