Wednesday February 15th

Posted: Feb 15, 2017 by: dmanton on: India Blog 2017

What a day! And, its only 4pm! We've done so much in our Wednesday that I don't know where to begin. The day started with a game of kho=kho with the staff at Bachpan, before the sun got hot! We played in the grounds opposite the school, with over a dozen teachers joining us for a warm game of kho-kho. Well done Mrs Smith and Miss Tomlinson for taking part in a mixture of sandals and bare feet - ouch! 

After kho-kho we were able to settle into a run of four lessons each, enjoying meeting and teaching four more classes. So many children are so pleased to have had the chance to experience some different teachers from the UK - its all very over-whelming and we keep being given chocolates, flowers and cards after the lessons! (not much of a hint, Southroyd children - ha ha)

Following lessons and an enjoyable assembly from the younger children, we were thrilled to spend some time with an Indian family - and a very nice house! The family own a business manufacturing and exporting products like polos, vick's rub and chocolates. The family shared an amazing lunch and spoilt us with gifts as we left. Their gardens have orchards and a fantastic vegetable patch, explaining the incredible freshly cooked and prepared lunch we enjoyed! 

The temperature is soaring today and at 36 degrees we're in need of some rest time before we go to the Shiv Restaurant later with the children and families of the Southroyd visitors this May!
