...just six more classrooms to go...

Well ... we "thought" the classroom constructions were nearly finished! We had only planned on two more classrooms for vocational training and zap - the Kenyan government's Ministry of Education took a turn for the better... and for us, it means six more classrooms need to be built - which will be so-called "workshops" - eight in all. Thank goodness we already have two. Our beautiful school library and our recently completed IT workshop are lifesavers in that aspect as they are both considered "workshops" - but we still must build six more as soon as we have the funding for them. The first three to be built will be "Home Economics" - which will develop the knowledge, understanding, skills, and values necessary to achieve optimal, healthy, and sustainable living for every child and youth as an individual, and as a member of their families and society. Three interconnected topics will be Food, Health, and Culinary Skills; Responsible Family Living; and, Textiles and Crafts. This will entail having to provide a small kitchen area for the students to learn how to cook healthy meals.
The next workshop will be for "Arts and Crafts" The curriculum sets out clear expectations for students, across the two integrated topics of Arts and Crafts. The qualities that Arts and Crafts develop are crucial components of the rounded general education that all young people should experience. These personal attributes include creativity, critical judgment, working with others or working individually, providing and receiving constructive criticism, and respecting differences. Our present Art teacher will be thrilled to have a "workshop" of her own filled with art materials to bring out the "artist" that exists in every child/person!

So now we just have to work on getting these two finished ... and then move on to the other four!

Asante san - thank you so much for any assistance possible!
