This is just an update so you all know what's going on in Care For Africa at the moment.
At out meeting last Wednesday, we split up into two groups, one for those on the trip to Africa and one for the rest of us.
For all those who wore the great kangas while serving at the cocktail party, we have sent off a thank you letter to the Tasmanian Uniform Emporium for their generous donation. So I hope you all had fun in your African dress!
Big news is that the Junior school Care For Africa meeting on Thursday 29.03.12 lunch time was a great success! Sounds like more kids than expected, so anyone willing to come to the junior school in time for their 12.30 lunch time would be most welcome. It's once a fortnight, and the week day is yet to be decided. Grade 11 and 12 students may have preffered days with study slots.
Here is a little note from Rose on how it all went.
Natasha and I ran the first Care for Africa Junior School Group on the 22nd. 29 students turned up from grades 3 to 6! We ran a few brainstorms to find out what the students are interested in, which includes having their own name. Some suggestions were Kids that Care (for Africa), and the Care for Africa Crew. Any other ideas are very welcome.
Over the next few sessions we will split into groups to do different activities such as writing letters to schools in Tarime, making posters to put up around the school to promote interest and knowledge about Care for Africa and setting up a lunchtime milo stall to be run by the students.
We are planning to run these sessions fortnightly to begin with, during the Junior school lunch break (12:30- 1:30). Anyone who wants to be involved or has any ideas please contact Rose (Grade 11) or Natasha (Grade 7).
