Kibuye Hope Academy has adjourned its second year of classes. We hope that these 8 students will treasure as many happy memories of this year as we teachers will. Memories like kid-organized parties in the guava tree fort during recess time.
And kindergarten science experiments.
And everyday moments like math class.
Abraham's creative phys ed classes, usually held outside except during rainy season downpours.
The year-end Festival of Cultures celebration, at which the adult guests could identify very few of the flags that the kids can identify.
The girls will likely not forget Abraham's art class including this Michelangelo simulation.
Nor the chicken coop that he helped them build for their chicks as an extra-curricular wood shop learning opportunity.
We hope the kids will remember some of the Kirundi that they have learned from our Kirundi teacher.
And they should certainly remember loads of laughter
and some silliness
and lots of love.
We are thankful for the joy of teaching and learning with these kids, even when their energy far exceeded ours.
We are also very grateful that our fabulous primary teacher plans to return for another year here at KHA. We are blessed.
