Workshop at Ronta Ek High School 27/2/2019
By Srey Leab - Education Manager of Project G
Our team ran a workshop at Ronta Ek High School and this is was he second time to run a workshop at this school. In the morning, our team arrived at the office at 6:20AM, and we had breakfast together then we leave the office at 6:50AM. While we were on the Tuk Tuk our team relaxed and chatted each other and they were so happy.
We arrived there at 7:40AM, as the director was busy, so we met with other teachers, and they helped us to organize students, and our team also helped students to cleaned class rooms and spent about 10 minutes then we came to the own team as we decided in lesson plan. Our teaching went smoothly because we followed our teaching plan, so we did very well from one activity to another activity. Especially at the beginning the students were enthusiastic about our game and this was important because it made a good connection between us before the lesson started.
While we were sharing, all of them were very interested in our lesson, but some of them were a bit shy. However, when we asked them questions, they always involved in answering. They also asked us many questions about their period.
For the boys team, they also really enjoyed the lesson. They were also interested about the part of the women lesson, and asked many questions.
After we finished teaching we provided all the girls with free feminine hygiene Kits and they were really excited to get their own Kit, and they wanted to try using it because all of them have never seen anyting like it before. Finally we had some snacks together and we talked and chatted with each other then we had group photos in each group; everyone showed their feeling strong excitement while we were taking the pictures and then said good bye.
We will be going back next month to follow up with the students who received the kit to get their feedback and answer any more questions they have
