Poultry project

Primary Three National Section Literacy theme for this month is ‘Managing resources in our sub-county’. As part of this theme they have to learn about projects. To really understand the concept of a project, they had to start up their own poultry project. The class had to work as a project team, formulate research questions, do the research and make the calculations to know if this project would be profitable. End of the week they will present their conclusions to the headteacher.

In these pictures they are asking a chicken farmer all they need to know about keeping chickens for business.

Children of the Summercamp 2016 visited the zoo and got an exclusive ‘behind the scene’ tour with a ranger.
They had close encounters with different animals and could even feed some of them.

Reptile Village

On 8th of July we visited the Reptile Village. This was organized under the theme: Environment.

Learners got a tour from a guide explaining about the different reptiles, how to take care of them and how to handle safely when encountering them in the wild. Leaners got the opportunity to touch and hold different animals, which made a great impression on them.

Ruth (7 years): ‘We saw big lizards, crocodiles, snakes, turtles, and white rats. The white rats are used to feed the snakes. I liked the Flying snake the most, because it is cute. I think the Reptile Village is fun and we learned many things.

Nelson Mandela Day

On 18th of July Pearl of Africa celebrated Nelson Mandela Day. Nelson Mandela Day is an international day to remember and celebrate the life and legacy of former South African president Nelson Mandela. The main aim of that day of for people to serve, and so our learners did. In the previous weeks learners had gotten to know more about the Welfare School in Entebbe. This is a school for special needs children. Through a workshop from social workers, they have learned about what special needs means and about the Welfare School in general. In the meantime they encouraged family members to donate to the school. We were very happy to see, that the learners and their families were so supportive, donating many clothes, toys, foods, etcetera. On Nelson Mandela Day we visited the Welfare School. We got a tour around the school, met the teachers and children, learned some sign language and had a good time in general.

Cleopatra (6 years): ’I loved how they are teaching the children and are giving them a nice time for playing. For children they don’t have a voice, they can use their hands to help them. It is called signlanguage.They could use their hands to explain to say good morning, good evening, to sit down and to stand up. We gave out some toys and clothes, which they really liked.’
