It all seems to be getting closer to departure day and even more so now that we have all met up to share resources we have prepared. A main part of our purpose of being in Kolkata is to train teachers to help teach their children long after we have gone. This is because most of the schools the Cathedral Relief Service supports are informal schools and the teachers are volunteers with limited training. We have therefore been working in groups to prepare resource packs that teachers can use in their own schools. Our twin school, Hastings, should therefore end up with about 8 different resource packs that can be used flexibly for many lessons. See below. Here are some pictures of us sorting and packing:
Now we just need to fit it in our suitcases!
