The third special class was a program regarding the learning of language. The basic premise is that children should know their first language well—both listening, speaking, then reading, writing. They should be taught the school subjects in that language. They should only be taught English as a subject. Once they have learned the subjects and are fluent in their own language they can start transitioning to learning subjects in English. The idea is that they can’t learn English and content of all the subjects at the same time.
The pictures I’m sending are of the opening assembly. The lines of people are the school leader and all his helpers that are called “ministers”! We have a minister of health and sanitation. We also have someone responsible for reporting the news. This is good for practicing English. Sr. Margaret types it up and it goes on a bulletin board. Many of them go and read it after they’ve heard it.
Please continue to pray for peace and resolution to this conflict.
