This week the class of Lekol Pi Gwo Byen was very busy with exciting activities.
We studied the poem Ayiti Demen (Haiti Tomorrow), which shares the message that together Haitians can create a beautiful Haiti. Just as one drop of water cannot make a flood, not one Haitian can make the change—it will take the effort of all Haitians.
We first read the poem and studied the meaning, then we wrote the poem on a long scroll of paper, then we painted the poem with many colors! Great fun and lots of social studies, some good learning in progress. Thanks go out to Andrew Bowring of England who visited us in August and donated the anthology of poetry as well as the paints and brushes.Art project at Pi Gwo Byen school.
We shared meals together.
We did our grammar, math and regular academic studies with our teacher, Rosemanie.
Kelly was our substitute one morning.
And finally we started our dance classes for PE on Friday afternoons! Thanks to Valencia a high school student who volunteers to teach the class.
