CAMBODIA BLOG DAY TWELVE – 31st May 2013
Last volunteering day today! Unfortunately the sickness hit me again last night and I was too ill to go to say goodbye to my class at the school – I at least managed to write a letter to the pupils and the teacher. I had one last trip out to the orphanage which was fantastic – saying goodbye was so hard; didn’t really know what to say! Was quite emotional, back at the centre now so tomorrow we head to Pnomh Penh to see the killing fields then we jet off to England !
Today I went to the Little Po school for the first time with a few other volunteers.. It was so fun and nice to see how different it is from the other school Ben Mal. There are a lot more children here than there are at the other school which is why more volunteers tend to go to Little Po instead.
I took a class of about 12 kids ranging from 8 years old to 15 years old. We had 2 classes, the first one was teaching them about family and relations and the 2nd class had to be about weather and the different seasons that England and Cambodia have. Sometimes it is quite tricky to teach them as you don’t realise what they already know. There’s a large range of abilities in each class so trying to keep everyone interested is the hardest skill. They all work together and help each other though which is nice.
