Day 5 of our experience saw us visit 2 Battambang schools that work with SeeBeyondBorders. We were lucky enough to sit in a classroom and observe a teacher who is a mentor with the SeeBeyondBorders program. The principal, the teachers and the students welcomed us with open arms.
It was very evident the impact of SeeBeyondBorders as you walked through to observe a lesson – from the driveway that was built by the project teams, to the resources the teacher and the students were using and the displays in the classroom.
We really felt like colleagues as we sat in the staff room and had a morning tea provided to us by the school and discussed the positive impact the program has had on student growth and achievement. The afternoon saw us set up our ‘classrooms’ for the week and we all immediately felt at home as we prepared for our lessons.
SeeBeyondBorders really does make a difference and the team are very excited to begin their teacher training workshops tomorrow!
