After a rather tired wake up and breakfast we all arrived at the school and attended some lessons, which we all really enjoyed. Year 9 took part in a technical drawing lesson which, after realising it wasn't an art lesson, we all found interesting. We all loved learning maths in a very different way. Year 10 learned about African climates in a geography and year 11 sat a religion lesson where they learned about traditional East African beliefs, which they found very different but still interesting.
We then all went for project work. The plastering team kept going with the classroom. Our splatting techniques all improved massively, however the skill of keeping all our cloths immaculate, which the fundies (Ugandan builders) have completely mastered, are still as unimpressive as when we began. The gardening team, despite a few walls falling over shaped set backs, continued to finish the key hole gardens- filling them with more soil and making the first efforts to dampen the soil.
After lunch we then had a football match against pupils from KCS, and in true Ugandan style we only found out about it this morning. Even with a team of very mixed abilities we all gave it our all. We made some dramatic saves (notably mine which was with my chest and completely winded me) and tackles and did all we could, but after a devastating 3-1 defeat I must report that sadly its still not coming home, just yet. Despite this, the whole experience was amazing for everyone: from the team taking part and playing to the rest of the cohort who watched from the sidelines and talked to some Ugandan children (about all sorts of interesting things!).
On arrival back at camp Fred we all had time to have a much needed rest before an amazing dinner of beef (but Sophie G thinks it was goat) stew and noodles.
