I titled the above short video "Oops, Amy accidentally let the kids inside the temporary mini-library" - they went wild!!! It was precious really, I just sat back and observed a group of children who were truly starved for books, I took out my camera and just seized the moment.
Another exciting thing was the graduation of the E-Learning computer based training course in English Proficiency - 27 teachers from our school and about 120 from other schools completed an 80 hour course over the summer. The culminating event - graduation - included competitions among the teachers to show off their English skills. Filipino are masters at memorizing long pieces and reciting them aloud, I honestly could not do this. Here is my counterpart Veron in action, she got first place!!
The Filipinos are so very creative and talented, everyone seems to be able to sing and dance. Here a few photos of our teachers in action practicing their improved English skills....
