Hi sharhys and dee here today was our last day teaching the acholi children the theme of the day was world cup, colours and flags. The first lesson we taught by millie, jack and danushaka, they taught the rainbow song and played games involving colours. The second lesson consisded of dee, poppy and a little input of ellie, they included worksheets, the rainbow song and fun and games. The last lesson was a really good way to send of the kids as it was led by big beth, small beth and connie, little beth brang white t-shirts that the children could decorate and keep forever. But then it thundered and it was the LOUDEST thunder we have ever heard!! After the first set of lessons we said our goodbyes to the morning group of acholi children, tears all round apart from dee.. we both had our 5th cheese sandwich of the week. Then the second set of lessons where repeated but with a different set of acholi children. Me and dee have finally done a wee in the acholi quarters hole (toilet).
Still cannot believe today was our last day this week has flown by so quickly and not to sure we are ready to leave. When it came to saying goodbye to the second set of acholi children there wasn’t a dry eye in the rom even pops j broke out a tear :0 After them waving us off abit more excitement came because we went going for a meal tonight and also knowing we could wear makeup, straighten our hair and have another ice cold shower. We went for dinner at café javars with all of our lady translator’s. In big church supporting us was Debra and Miriam and tonight they looked stunning. For dinner me and dee had (dee) pizza (sharhys) BBQ burger. !OH WE EVEN GOT WIFI! Me (sharhys) and jade made a speech to the adults to say a massive thank you for not only giving us a once in a lifetime opportunity
But also giving us memories never to forget. My speech to the ladies was:
“Tonight this meal is a way of saying thank you for all the time and support you have given to us throught this week we couldn’t of done it without you. We want to thank you not only because you helped us build a relationship with the children but also we built a strong relationship with you.
You have inspired us and kept us going along this week and the way your always smiling but once again Thankyou you will not be forgoten and the memories will remain for us forever. We love you.”
And then I said a thankyou to John and Sophie:
“ also I want to say a massive thankyou to John and Sophie for not only housing us, feeding us and keeping us healthy but also making this trip the best it could be without you and sophie it wouldn’t of been the same. So yeah a big thankyou to john and sophie again for giving us this a,azing oppotuinity.”
On the way home in the bus we sang, Poppy leading the way as per…
This has been such an emotional journey for all of us saying goodbye today really showed this. We have learnt to be great full and realized how much some take things for granted, we have also heard some inspiring stories that will stick with most of us forever. Seeing the children cry today made us realsie how much they appreciate education when it doesn’t seem that much to us.
We are just about to go play poker with the ‘lads’(using tin foil for chips!!)…
