The children have been so enthusiastic and are desperate to show us what they can do. They are very focused and work to a high standard. They have responded so well to us and have impressed us with their ability to work together and to support each other. We hope that they recognise just how much they are achieving.
It has been really special working with Pho Cho and Neeshar. Say Ta Nar provides a safe and caring environment for the children to learn in and they are totally at ease. They are encouraged and supported, being helped to form their own thoughts and ideas and to share their own and views. Everything runs like clockwork but we know that things only go so smoothly because of the handwork behind the scenes.
It's not all just been about teaching. We have learned more about Burma and the Burmese situation. Pho Cho takes great pride in his country's history and is determined that his pupils and visitors understand it's importance.
Working in a different school is challenging and everyone's flexibility and support have helped us achieve what we wanted too. This trip has been about sharing. We have been inspired by what we have seen at Say Ta Nar and are looking forward to going home and trying out new ideas. We hope the staff at Say Ta Nar have enjoyed working with us and that hopefully they'll have some new things to try out too. The children here have enjoyed seeing the work by Pirniehall and the children back home will be fascinated by the work, pictures and stories from Say Ta Nar that we will bring back with us.
