Another successful day for the SeeBeyondBorders crew as we set out to work alongside the the people of Cambodia. The Projects Team travelled to a local school where they ran art lessons and ball games for the very lively children, and also helped the local community members to finish concreting a section of their school.
Meanwhile, the Teaching Team delivered their third day of professional development to the Khmer teachers at the Training College. The Khmer teachers were in stitches singing the Hokey Pokey and trying to stay safe during ‘What’s the time Mr Tiger?’ (a wolf was just too difficult to explain). Along with the many valuable concrete Maths activities that The Teaching Team are modeling. We hope that the Khmer teachers can also take away a number of ‘warm up’ activities and exciting games to engage their students in the classroom.
On top of what was already a successful day, the SeeBeyondBorders crew piled into tuk tuks and headed for the Battambang Circus. It is hard to express just how incredibly fascinating this experience was. The Battambang Circus is something that you just have to see – the performers are amazingly talented and full of life as they tell a tale through acrobatics, art and music. We were mesmerized throughout the entire performance and agree that this has to be one of the highlights so far.
