The facility is beautiful! Just beautiful!
It's big and bright and airy. It has amazing sound proofing on the walls for acoustics - I couldn't stop touching it!) It has properly installed automatic basketball hoops - it has an international standards rating. Yes, we could actually host an international basketball carnival in our very own Sports Centre. The space is aerated with massive fans (there is a rude name for these!). There's a kitchen and very generous amenities.
The classrooms underneath are stunning - long rooms with muted colours just screaming out for colourful art works; tinted windows and air conditioning (yes, air conditioning! I'm now conducting an auction at Staff Meetings for teachers wanting to move to these rooms!)
We can move in on Monday.
A friend of mine recently spent seven weeks working in Tanzania and spent most of that time in classrooms with children who walk up to an hour each way just to go to school.
I wonder if our children realise how very lucky they are?
