Holidays are officially over and its back to work! Sunday night I had exactly the same feeling of the night before school goes back as I did as a pupil. Monday morning, Beth and I were both suddenly surprised by finding another 3 teachers had been employed at school. While this does take the pressure off us teaching almost constantly it does give the potential for us getting very bored very quickly as on average we now are only teaching two lessons a day. This term I am teaching English to P6 and SST (social subjects) to P5 and P4 as well as P2 music. There have been quite a lot of teething problems with time tables as teachers have tried to take over each others lessons and notes being passed between teachers that haven't always been the best but no doubt this will all solve itself soon. The teaching itself has gone very well so far though. Today in SST we changed the school playground into Eastern Uganda and had border controls etc. English also is going well, its the first time there has been a P6 in the school so the cirriculum is a very new one however looks quite good with debating included in the textbook.
Yesterday we were off time table for awhile as we had a goodbye concert for Nathan, a Canadian who has been staying with us for the last month. The kids sand songs and we the teachers were all made to get up and made to have a go at traditional Buganda dancing, much to the amusement of the pupils.
Oh, also today marks my 5 months in Uganda mark which means 5 months remain for Beth and 6 mnonths for me before retunring home.
