On the last day of class before a two week break for Easter, twelve high school graduates from Hudson’s Hope, British Columbia came to share time at the DIF school with students and bring school supplies for the KKIS Project. There was little hope that we could get the kids to sit still when vacation was looming so close so we had decided to do sidewalk drawings of each other and then label the body parts. This kept them involved but it was hot outside and the trees offer some shade but not enough, so they moved inside to air conditioning for a lively session of Musical Chairs. The high school students quietly watched and when the game had ended Teacher Lupita suggested that the big kids now dance with the younger ones. Hence the photo above.
The Hudson’s Hope students had raised money to buy school supplies, which we gratefully accepted, and they they had made gift bags for each of the DIF school kids. The kids shook each hand, thanked them for the bag and then began exploring the contents. Inside they found yo-yo’s, bright red and flashing when in use along with pencils, pens, notepads and chocolate.
Thanks Hudson’s Hope for your thoughtfulness.
