The end is in sight...

Hello! Welcome to today's blog!

This morning everyone pulled themselves out of bed reluctantly and full of aches and pains, but excited that the ends of all the projects were in sight. We left for the school, and all joined a lesson. Some of our art students attended an A level art lesson on portraits taught by our own Mr Peebles. It was hard to do the lesson because they had no paints, pencils, paper or even chalk to write on the board. The others attended a Geology or PRS lesson taught by Mrs cross and Mrs Sands respectively. Most of us were shocked that many of the students didn't know what a mindmap was. After everyone returned to plastering, and the classrooms were finished (with considerable help from the fundees!) and for those asking- to get the higher sections, the fundees built scaffolding to climb up and continue. Mrs cross went to teach an A level class on Moses.

After lunch everyone returned to their previous projects, the gardening team secured the walls of the key hole gardens and got the soil ready to plant. The art team tidied up the murals adding outlines and contrast. The library team continued their hard work labelling and organising books.

Everyone finished the day tired but happy!

  1. Hey Soph! I’m glad you’re having such a great time there and I am looking forward to seeing you when you come back. We are missing you you here, and Mum has bought you some very nice presents today, I also bought you a present from a very unique shop. Both mum and dad are missing you like mad, but don’t worry I’m keeping them entertained. They’re really enjoying the very cheap wine (if you know what I mean).
    Talk to you soon!

  2. Oh no we got you an authentic Hungarian Toblerone Sophie! But iceberg lettuce it is. How about you Sam? Are you alive, hat wearing, pining for lettuce? Looks like you've all been working very hard. Looking forward to hearing about the next stage of your adventures lots and lots of love Mum and Dad Gale

  3. I bet you can hardly believe its nearly time to leave KCS - well done for all your hard work - pupils and staff - and for doing PGS proud. I am confident that you have all furthered our quest to be 'Partners in Learning'

    I miss the pictures! Daisy Sissonswhy don't you write a blog so we can hear from you - Are You ok ? All fine here xx

  5. Loving all the blogs and we both are amazed at all the hard work you’re putting in to the school and the teamwork involved. So interesting too to hear how you are finding some aspects of schoolwork so different in .Uganda. Look forward to hearing all about your time there Edie when we next see you. Have a happy time on safari, take lots of pictures! Thinking of you so much. Grandma and Grandpa xx

  6. So glad that all the hard work has paid off and you can see big a impact from your time there. Please tell Will we have pancake mix!

  7. ...and new trainers, so leave the plastering ones behind!

  8. Thanks for the plastering detail ! Must be great to see how productive ye have been. Hope it all fits back in the rucksack when it comes to packing !!!! Lots of love: Mum , Dad, Gran & pops & delma send their love

  9. Thank you Kristian for the effusive message we are very grateful.
    Hope you have had a great time at the college, good to see the photo's of you working so hard.
    Enjoy the next stage of your adventure. Lots of love Mum and Dad xxx

  10. Sounds like it’s been another productive day, even if you have all been a bit exhausted. I have no idea how you teach an art lesson without anything to draw or paint with, but I am sure Mr Peebles was equal to the task. Thank you for the plastering information - excellent. I am not sure which is more entertaining- the blogs and photos or the accompanying comments. I feel I may be as relieved as Kristian’s parents to hear he is a) alive and well and b) wearing his hat. Got to go now as plane taking off. Edie - love you and miss you as usual 😘

  11. Max Summerskill : Hi Daisy ... mum and George are back from California , mum started to show me everything she bought.... I fell alseep , work up and she was still showing me. Hope suncream , hat and glasses are on and sketch book is found ?? I want chimps ... when are you seeing the chimps? Look forward to more photos. Love dad xxx

  12. Thanks for another update (it's much better than the India trip). It would be great to hear who worked on which project and what you achieved. And we miss you too Cooch xx

  13. You must all be really exhausted after the work, it looks like the whole trip of working, attending lessons and being with the other school children has been a really unique experience. It has been great to see all your photos. We were pleased to see Elliot working hard in Mrs Sands geography lesson - hopefully this is good sign for year 10.!!! Enjoy the wildlife and all of you take lots of pictures (especially Elliot) as we are all wanting to share in your unique experience love mum and dad xxx (ps were are back from our holiday now ☹️☹️)

  14. Safe travels, on the next leg of your adventure, thinking of you and we're looking forward to seeing the safari photos.

  15. Lisanna Summerskill: Thanks for the update! So pleased Kristian is still alive. That’s good news eh? Hope you are all liking the food.

  16. Not sure my first post worked, my second is attached by mistake to your 18th July blog, and I can see blog number 3 worked, so trying the first one again, I will crack this blogging lark. Honor, we all missed you in Italy and it was Fantasimo, Liberty learned she loves Tiramisu and is still allergic to walnuts ! Oops. You all look like you’re doing amazing work at an incredible place, I’ve been following the college Facebook page to catch a glimpse of your bright green trousers. Liberty and I will be there to meet you on Tuesday, we miss you so much xxxxxx
