Paint, Pastels, Skipping Ropes and Rocks!

This morning the SeeBeyondBorders team enjoyed breakfast together at Cafe Eden before splitting up to tackle the day.

The Teaching Team set out for their second day of workshops while the Projects Team – along with Gwen, Amy and Kate, headed to Prekchdau school to teach the children art, introduce them to skipping and finish concreting a pathway between the two classroom blocks.

After a successful morning in the classroom, we displayed the artworks on the classroom walls and headed outside to skip. The children were so enthusiastic and polite- I’m not sure who was having a better time – us or them.

We were privileged enough to join the locals for a Khmer lunch before heading back to the school to finish the day with concreting. Bucket after bucket of stones were carted from one side of the school yard to the other and finally we had most of the path complete.

The Khmer community volunteers presented us with a thank you gift (beautiful scarves) and we left in a big sweaty mess!!

This was such a great experience- although it was hard work, it was well worth it!
