Fall Classes in Full Swing at Shine!

 Our second semester at Shine has begun and the girls are really enjoying their full schedule of learning. We have our second set of girls learning cookery with a Western chef, English and Khmer literacy, computer class, mathematics, life skills classes and a whole host of fun electives. This semester we are offering knitting, gardening, baking, and for P.E. we have found two amazing outlets for our Dream Home girls, skateboarding and breakdancing!

Thanks to two local organizations, Skateistan and Tiny Toones, our girls are spending two hours every week learning to connect with their bodies and engage in some very cool physical activity. The first hour is for skateboarding, where the girls are learning about balance and flexibility.  After just three sessions, they can skate up small ramps and under low-slung ropes. The second hour is for break dancing, where the girls are improving their strength and flexibility. The most recent class taught the girls about balancing on their heads! By the end of class, everyone could do it, if only for a few seconds.
