Thursday was a tough day for Miss Hair - enjoying spending time with the children and staff at Nyandiwa School but also thinking about everyone at Buckingham Park as we were inspected by Ofsted. Miss Hair would have wanted to be at Buckingham Park to contribute to the inspection but was able to send a number of encouraging text messages from Africa!
As the first week of Miss Hair's visit draws to a close, she has spent her last day at the school. She will now visit some community projects, and also spend a short time on the Masai Mara National Reserve - it is half term, after all!
Miss Hair writes:
"Yesterday (Thursday) I took part in a ceremony giving calves and goats to communities, danced with a widows groups and were sung to by a wonderful group of orphans.
Today (Friday) is my last day at Nyandiwa. I've taught them 'Great Big God, played with balloons, led part of assembly in the sunshine and prepared for an emotional goodbye.
Emotional goodbye done. I'm a mess. We are so blessed and we have made such a difference since the start of our link. I can't express how wonderful this week has been. All at Nyandiwa say that they love all at Buckingham Park like family members and send their blessings to you all."
We are privileged to be linked with a school in western Kenya, Nyandiwa Primary School. Nyandiwa is situated about 3.5 kilometres from the town of Oyugis.
