While my previous post had some pictures of the training workshops, this blog post is going to be mostly pictures with commentary sprinkled through out. Also, I am taking pictures with my cell phone so I apologize in advance if some of the photos are of poor quality!
Some shots of the school in Vembakkam. This school houses primary age students from Kindergarten(LKG and UKG) up to 5th standard.
- Some educational pictures drawn on the side of the school.
Me, Devan and Marion explaining an English packet they made to the teachers so they can properly utilize it.
Ukesh and I just hanging out during one of the breaks. (I have a weakness for young children, and he was just so cute!)
I promise this is the last Ukesh picture (but seriously, can you deny this adorableness?). After we created the origami crown it was only fitting to crown the King of Cute, seems like he likes it as well.
Mathu and Nallini put the evaluation scores of the teachers on the skills chart.
Manjula and Ukesh fold paper for an origami boxes
In Coimbatore, we stayed in a suburb 45 minutes away from the city. Eureka Child Foundation rented out a training facility equipped with rooms, bathrooms, a kitchen, and two large halls; it was absolutely beautiful and spacious.
The training facility, it had such a unique architecture and was very open allowing the breeze to come through.
Some pictures of the trainers practicing their English speaking skills via a role-playing activity.
Left to Right: Abivedanth, Fidel Castro, and Gayathri. Since it was summer break some of the trainers’ children came along. We had fun talking to them about what they liked to do, what movies they watched and they showed us how to slide down one of the white structures. And yes, the middle child’s name really is Fidel Castro, apparently his older sister is named Cuba.
