First Day of School!!!

Yesterday was the beginning of the new school year here at Kasana Children’s Centre of New Hope Uganda. In an effort to more fully integrate our Western kids into the Ugandan culture and to aid them in making more Ugandan friends, many have joined the primary and secondary schools. As Toby left for the morning assembly, he was so excited!!!!! Earlier Geoff had walked with him to meet the headmaster and to settle on the exact schedule. Toby will be taking Christian Religious Education, Science and Social Studies. He will also be able to be present for some mid-morning breaks and lunches, P.E. and gardening times. It will be a challenge for me to learn to adjust to this new arrangement as he will be in and out of our school schedule, but I’m thankful we have the ability to give him this rich experience!
