We have had a few complaints about the anonymity of our posts so we will try to remember to identify the writer.

We replaced the bricks – as soon as the lorry arrived, the students poured out of their classrooms and started carrying the bricks into the classrooms for safe keeping.  Not quite the British way of doing things – I’m not sure I would be able to adjust back to the Health & Safety constraints back home.

The builder arrived and duly started mixing cement with the sand the children had previously collected from the local river bed.

It may not seem very exciting but the walls are a very welcome addition to our classrooms – having walls which are only about two and a half metres high under a pitch tin roof means that all your lessons are shared and the students can hear three classes at once.  Ceilings were too expensive so this made an acceptable compromise.  It also adds extra security to the computer room.
