Drama Class - Day 2

This was the second and final day of teaching drama at New Dawn High School.

This church, just a stone's throw away from the school, is where they first held classes in 2006.

The road just outside the school gates.  The first day we came, it had rained the night before so the mud was thick and clingy.

Greeting one of the cows the school keeps.

More kale.  By growing them in these planters, formed of heavy-duty plastic sheeting and wooden stakes, they can grow many plants in a small area.

Fredrick, one of our alumni helpers in the class is giving us a tour.  Above are the water tanks.

A student, Davine, is opening windows and tying up curtains for maximum light in the room.  All the classrooms are shipping containers which have been re-purposed.  

Frederick, Maggie and Au (our photographer/videographer) are standing in the courtyard of the new wing of the building which was dedicated last year.

My team helpers, Maggie and Ann.

Miriam the cook.

Two of the students in the final performance.  Au is in the white shirt, taking photos, and you can see the back of Hans' head in the front row.  This gives a sense of the size of the room.  I think it might be the only room that's the size of the whole shipping container.  The rest are broken up into smaller classrooms.  This was the room where Hans was teaching the teachers, but he graciously agreed to move to a different room so that we'd have room for all the theatre games and exercises and performances we did.

"Parable of the Talents."

After class today, Irene the Director, took us to the dorms where 20 of the girls live.  This is Margaret who is one of the school's teachers as well as the dorm mother and mother of her own two girls. Amazing.

Internet is doing weird things so I'll have to post a photo of one of the rooms tomorrow...
