Projects, projects, projects!

Dear Supporters,

 

Students at Educandário Creche Comunitária Sonho da Vovó Clara – an independent, community school offering free education and food to the children of Mata Escura in Salvador da Bahia, Brazil – have been extremely industrious in the last couple of months. 3 huge learning projects have been completed and the school has been a riot of colours with all the beautiful work…some of these colours have even spilled over into the streets of the Mata Escura favela! 

 

To begin the month of September students celebrated the arrival of Spring with the ‘Spring is Alive!’ project. Students completed work on the seasons, the life cycle of plants, birds and other animals and an art project to create Spring inspired carnival outfits. A large group of students then completed a fun parade through the streets of the favela, showing off their outfits and hailing the end of the rainy season and the arrival of drier Spring days. It was a lovely event that brought some much-needed cheer to the streets of this deprived town. It was great to see the students' pride in their school and their project work, the children sang songs as they walked and showed the positive side of life in Mata Escura, when all too often only the crime and deprivation in the area are visible. 

 

At the end of the month our younger students celebrated Day of the Tree (21st September). They created a lovely mural for the school entrance hall, featuring all their handprints making up the leaves of a giant tree. Teacher Andrea also took the older children into the wooded area at the back of the school and they identified trees and did some leaf rubbings. Mata Escura means ‘dark forest’ so it’s very appropriate that our students learn about trees! 

 

The beginning of October saw the start of ‘Transport Month’. We began with a practical project with the students making their own road signs and traffic signals. Our teachers then put their heads together to design a fantastic game, with a road layout on the floor and large movable buses. The students split into teams and played for points, going round the road course and obeying the traffic signals. This was fantastic fun and a great way for the children to learn how to understand the transport system and stay safe on the roads. With so many children walking long distances to and from school and having to cross numerous busy highways, this work could prove invaluable in preventing an accident.

 

 
We hope you enjoy these colourful photos of our fabulous Spring months (September and October) at the school and thank you for the donations that make our work possible.

 

With Gratitude,

 

Brazil
