Recently came back from Training on Coll which was one of the best weeks of my life ! I met some amazing new people including my partner Lily who is so sound ! Good job in matching us up PT !! I learnt so so much and really cannot wait to get out there and start teaching ! We will be going to one of two primary schools both of which are very rural which is exactly what i wanted :). One is right down in the south of Namibia in a town called Keetmanshoop which i literally bang in the middle of the Kalahari desert !! Wow ! The other is in a very small town called Witvlei which is in the west of the counrty inbetween Windhoek ( the capital) and Gobabis which are both busy cities. We have been told that we are primarily going there to set up extra curricular clubs after schools and be teaching assistants in Art, PE, Drama, English and maths classes however we were also told that we would more than likely be taking our own classes as the teachers over there are very lazy ! (I will fit right in then !) Apparently both schools are fairly well resourced which is quite good but i think i will stock up on stationary when i get there just in case.
The plan is to fly from Heathrow to Johannesburg on the 20th January then fly from Johannesburg to Windhoek where we will send a couple of days in the capital staying in a hostel called The Cardboard Box !! Then one of our hosts will take us to our project !
After training everything has become so much more real and i am incredibly excited to go !!
I will try and keep this blog going while i am overseas but i really dont know if i will have internet !
Bye bye for now !
