We did our fifth book distribution today, the second distribution for Selpele Village. We took 48 activity books and half a dozen wall charts (as requested by the teachers) plus 60 text books which will be of great benefit to both the students at the primary school on the island, and the older children who have to travel to Waisai for school.
My parents were able to come and see what I've been up to out here and they brought boxes and boxes of pencils which are always a big hit with the kids.
I was thrilled to arrive at the village today and meet more of the teachers here and see classes running well. It's nice to see the kids being offered the opportunity to learn in a nurturing environment.
