Thursday 2 February 2012: New bicycle
This is at Zola Zola secondary school.
We are paying this girl's fees. I met her once, but at the moment can't recall her name.
I do know that she got the best results in the school in her JCSE exams and an A in English. She lives a long way from the school and so we bought her a bike. It is very difficult to get a strong girls bike and this was found second hand, I assume (No notes from Harisen)
She is a wonderful student, but her family are poor and couldn't pay her fees.
Rhoda, the school principal is in the background.
These are some of the other girls we support in Zola Zola Government Secondary School. They are all selected on the basis of poverty and the fact that they are hard workers. Casca and Breandan are there as well.
On the home front we went to meet the boys and girls in St Anthony's Senior Primary School in Kilcoole, Co Wicklow. Máire McHugh one of the teachers volunteered for a month with us in Malawi, last Summer, in teacher training. We got huge welcome and the students were amazing. Thanks to all.
