aim of the session:enforcing the culture of importance of latrines/toilets
summary of the session: The session was fun ever in all sessions i ever seen.we was decided today to educate students in a club of hygiene and we tried to combine 4 classes(2 6th years,5th year and 4th year).we were outside of the classes taking a fresh air.in front of pupils at a share the teacher in charge of hygiene started introducing what we are going to do and we introduced ourselves since that it was the first time to meet with 6th and 5th years pupils.we decided to talk on toilets because it was a session which 5th year students were going to learn today. we told them that we are going to learn hygiene within our hygiene club and we distributed pictures in 6 groups. we requested them to go in their groups and find us what they are seeing on photos. after 10 minutes of discussions and facilitating them on discovering what they will be saying;a good time that we were waiting come;students started to do the exposition of their pictures which were ranging between 4-6 in each groups.students presented what they were seeing on pictures which was on latrines with all standards,people who defecate at places outside of latrines,latrines which were not closed,lacking some materials and other latrines which were too bad for hygiene promotion....
each group were taking 10min to present their pictures to the public and comments.after each presentation,we assigned each group to go and prepare for us a work demonstrating what they learned.groups work were ranging from songs,dance,poems,comedies.pupils demonstrated how amazing they are;it took only 20 minutes per group to prepare their work and they come back for the presentation. 5 teachers,headmaster,2 RVCP volunteers and 1 teacher in charge of hygiene club were waiting to watch what students prepared. the first time ever in my hygiene activities and teaching sessions since 2010 come. students demonstrated that they have to putting together their efforts and talents to produce what all participants seen as creativity among primary school students. each group were taking at least 10 min to present their work. we conclude the session at 5:30 and teachers were impressed with the capacity of students of demonstrating that they understood what they were learning in few times passed.we decided to host similar session next wednesday for the other students who will be there in the club because there is a part of students who studied in morning hours who will be coming in afternoon hours next wednesday.stay turned for the video next time while we will be back at school.
good points:the method of enabling students participating themselves by facilitating them to discover was very successful
Challenge: we did not recorded any video or photo because of lacking a camera
