This week I have been visiting schools in Asa. They are mostly rural and very hard to find. In this school there were four classes in one room. There was a lot of chanting and singing so it was hard to concentrate. A few Primary one children were sitting in a little room-more like a big cupboard-off the classroom, waiting patiently for a teacher.
Here the teacher is doing the 'Yam is in the Bag'- a song from the training. There were other classes working out here.
The head teacher was keen to show me round the village. The school was in the heart of the village. Here they are drying cassava on the roof. I met the oldest woman in the village-she is 85! The SBMC helped the school to buy a drum for the school when they dance. Other children heard about this and they have doubled the number of children in the school!
The Kinderkarten children were learning numbers under the tree. The teacher left this little girl in charge and she is pointing to the numbers. Two of the boys started to have a wrestle but the head teacher soon sorted it out. He had a great way with the children. Parents also came into the school and there was a nice family atmosphere.
