Thanks for always being eager to hear about news from our program - this makes us feel even more committed to what we do at Magical Classsroom.
The current situation is certainly very changeable and unpredictable but Magical Classroom is committed to do everything possible with respect to providing education for our children. We do this whilst respecting the health of our valued colleagues. There are difficulties in all of our communities and unfortunately the virus has been present in all of our communities, but we’ve always striven to find a way to continue working.
All of our classrooms have been working differently depending on the communities’ circumstances. We listen to the opinions of the families, who alongside the local authorities always show us considerable support.
Some of our facilitators visit the children in their homes and others work in small groups. In certain occasions we’ve had to stop classes due to the number of Covid cases present in particular communities. This prioritises the health and well-being of our students and facilitators.
Certain facilitators and community coordinators have received a Covid vaccination and others will soon receive theirs which will hopefully allow us to continue our work.
Each week we carry out planning sessions for each facilitator and this is done in conjunction with her head trainer, Lucy, facilitators and community coordinators. During recent months we’ve completed two training sessions for all of our facilitators. We have achieved this by working in small groups and going from one community to the next. We have another training session planned for the end of September or beginning of October.
Each of our facilitators have illustrated themselves to be very responsible and dedicated to our program. We are extremely appreciative of each one of them and we have worked with each one despite these challenging times.
We really do appreciate everyone’s support.
With sincere appreciation and love,
Aula Mágica Guatemala
