The Refurbishment of the School

The refurbs are finally completed and these are some of the images to have been received. The improvement is immense! More will follow when things improve with the electricity supply. Zambia is currently experiencing lots of power cuts and power surges which is playing havoc with netwwork connections. As soon as we receive more pics of the inside work they will be displayed.
Exhilda (the Headteacher) and all involved with the school are thrilled with their 'new school' and says they are the talk of Choma. She and we, the UK Supporters of Jack and Jill School, would like to express our grateful thanks to the Keswick Lions for their financial support of the refurbishment project.
Thanks too to Musenge Njelesani, Building Contractor for his commitment to completion to a high standard

Thankyou very much to Andy for highlighting Jack & Jill's story to the wider world. Much appreciated. I hope other people will get behind us too to give these children the same opporetunities as others.

 

What Andy and the Keswick Lions have done will certainly make a huge difference to the children at Jack and Jill school. Exhildah and the teachers are overwhelmed with the generosity from the UK.

We were very lucky to have been presented a massive cheque on Saturday 27 June 2015. The cheque was presented by Andrew Cannon on behalf of the Keswick Lions.

The cheque was for £6576 and will now be used by the Supporters of the Jack & Jill School, Choma to bring the standard of the building to a safe and clean state. It will do many things including replace wiring, roofs and even add a toilet block.

For this we are genuinely very grateful to Andy and Diane Cannon the Keswick Lions group.

Visit to Choma December 2014

 

Maria and Phil visited Jack and Jill School December 2014 where Maria delivered the ICAN Early Language Development training, which was received by 27 participants - teachers, teaching assistants and trainee teachers. The two day Training was well received. The workshop was intended to help the community, as well as the school itself. Parents attended a meeting for parents after the football match. Ightenhill Football Club heard about Jack and Jill from Rosegrove Infant School in Burnley and donated football kits and boots which we presented and the children wore them for the football match.
