Warm greetings to all of our friends at Kafuro who are just starting Term 3. Our new academic year started at Liss a fortnight ago, but this morning was the first chance for Mr Stanley to hold an assembly about his visit to Uganda in July and August. He told the school about what a great trip he’d had, the warmth of the welcome from the community of Kafuro, the chess, cooking and tag rugby, Gloria and Gloria’s visit to Mweya, but most importantly how much the community of Kafuro appreciates the links with Liss Junior School. I can assure everyone at Kafuro that the feeling is mutual.
This afternoon letters from Kafuro were handed out to the children in Liss classrooms and they took great pleasure in reading them. Many of the children had questions that I will save for another blog post, but they realised that they have much in common with their friends in Kafuro. One particular area of interest was in the Kafuro school trip which several pupils mentioned in their letters. Our children are particularly interested in why salt is so popular in Uganda. We can’t wait to read your trip report.
We hope to hear from our friends in Kafuro soon.
