Whatever it takes to make a difference!

A note from Mrs. C:

As mentioned in our assembly last week, I am organising a regular visit to a local school for kids with special needs. The idea is to give up our time and skills to help out for 30 minutes at a time.

Here is the link to the school if you want to see what they achieve already.

The other project we have is to help out another similar school in Jaipur, Rajasthan in India. The kids are very creative, artistic and competitive. The local school sends students in to help them but it would be great to send in some experiments you particularly enjoyed and can explain clearly. Please bear in mind that the teachers live in a poor area but have the means to adapt materials/resources, if necessary. Throughout this exercise, you will get a better understanding of your topics and will help out a lesson to be more fun. Here is the first school interested with a link with you. I have emailed and asked for specific topics in English and Science but feel free to send in your favourite tasks! Please ask your teacher to have a look at it first and then contact me.

Have a look at the kids you would help.

Another school we visit regularly is interested in a similar link. I will get more details from them and will get back to you.
