NOTES OF A VISIT ON 13 OCTOBER 2014 BY GILL MARSHALL-ANDREWS
TO GREEN PARK NURSERY SCHOOL AND LIBRARY
The compound looked in good order, clean and well kept. The trees are growing and the play equipment
outside is functioning well. The classrooms
were clean and tidy with charts on the walls and children working hard. Some of
the work of the middle class of 3 – 4 year olds was particularly impressive.
There are 10 small children on roll, 13 in the middle class
and 10 in the top class.
35 children from Green Park attend Loldia Primary
School. They travel by minibus paid for
by the parents.
The children’s toilets were functioning but the handbasins
were not. In the outside washing area
the tap was faulty but water did come out.
The gutters seem to be working and the tanks are operational.
The smallest children need rugs on the floor.
I met Simon Kemo working with an adult student on a
computer. He is employed 8 hours a day
Mon – Friday partly to help with some of the teaching and outdoor activities in
the school and partly to teach IT in the afternoons and evenings. He also works on Saturday mornings with the
older children – mainly sport and IT with some counselling. He has made a huge difference to the running
of the school and the library.
4 computers are running OK but 2 are not. One may need more RAM and the other may need
a mouse as the pad doesn’t work.
New classroom addition to the building
This is a large classroom well finished except for a
seriously bad door and windows that have no closing fitments. There is a large TV which is used as a DVD
but there are very few DVDs.
Proposals for funding from TAS
the baby classroom
Educational DVDs for all ages
POST MEETING NOTE
GMA met Njenga the Resident Manager and discussed various
matters – water / IT /trips etc. He said that the Friends of Green Park who put
the new classroom up also intend to build a dining hall and kitchen for the
school. There is also the possibility
that they will fund a borehole to serve the camp and school.
