I had a lovely Christmas Day at our school. When I arrived I was surprised to see about 50 children instead of the usual class of 18 – 20 but I soon found out why they were there… They gathered around me in a huge circle and sang three rounds of Happy Birthday! – (my birthday was on 23rd)
They had made cards and a lot of little presents in a basket they’d decorated very beautifully. I had to try not to cry, it was really touching and they were so excited and happy.
Considering the school didn’t exist this time last year and the kids had never written or spoken in English it was a lovely way to show their progress – A wonderful Christmas day 🙂
