Maronka Girls Latest News April 2013

Hi Everyone,

Its been a busy few months and there has been lots happening in Maronka.

Sports day was great fun with many enthusiastic competitors and supporters. When I asked Marion did she win she said Yes I came first, first at the back and I think that puts it very nicely. They all had a fantstic time despite the heat and the dust.

 One of the 1st's at the back Mary

Agnes is cheering on the green team in the tug of peace

and they must have won as Agnes is very excited  ; )

Everyone joins in on sports day even the little ones

and here I am just hanging out, very pleased to have missed the staff races.

The trustees came for a visit in February and enjoyed their stay so much they are wishing they could afford to make it an annual event. They stayed for 2 nights in Maronka and were delighted with the children's progress and thanked the staff for their dedication and hard work.

Some of our girls are studying hard preparing for their primary exams in May and we wish them luck, its a first for Maronka to take the primary exams and it is very exciting.
Miriam says......EducAid Maronka sit the National Primary School Examination for the first time on 4th May. With the hard work and support from Mohammed Cobra Bangura and Alusine Barrie in particular, we have every confidence that the Eagles class will do exceptionally well and make us proud.
Go Maronka Go!
Marion and Isatu are now working on their higher teaching certificate during the holidays and we wish them luck with all their studies. They are both very dedicated young women and great role models for our girls.

We are building accommodation for the boys in the village, within the next few months they will all be sleeping together under one roof, great progress.......

We have started dressmaking lessons for some of the girls and we have our own fashion label........

We have 2 new volunteers Francesca and Polly who will be working on agriculture and art...........
