Students Are Still Learning!

Meet Teacher Lydia, Nyaka primary school teacher & counselor 

Lydia began working as a student teacher with Nyaka in 2003 and then as a full time teacher in 2004. Usually she works as a teacher in Nyaka Primary school, teaching students in Primary 2, 5 and 6 (equivalent to Grades 1, 4 & 5). During the pandemic, Lydia’s role has changed a little… Lydia has been working to support students who are out of school. She helps to identify suitable educational materials, print them out and distribute them to students. When government guidelines allow, she supports students in small clusters, helping them keep up with their learning. She also does a lot of counseling. Students have experienced a lot of loss during the pandemic and teacher Lydia helps them to process their feelings and feel less alone.  

Quote from Lydia: “My role in the pandemic is to counsel and guide students on how to cope with the lockdown.”

Many teachers like Lydia are continuing to travel to their student's communities to deliver materials and to teach small clusters. Instead of giving up when the Nyaka bus transporting teachers to their student's villages got stuck in the mud, teachers went as far as to walk to their student's villages to distribute study materials.

Nyaka teachers will stop at nothing to continue educating our students while schools remain closed.
