Kiri Bah Ler Update

05 Dec 2016

Following the start of the new school year in Cambodia this month, I wanted to give you a quick update from our UWS Kiri Bah Ler School which opened for the new academic year on 1st November.

Though community teachers have been leading lessons in the school throughout the monsoon, the start of the new school year means government-funded teachers will now be working in Kiri Bah Ler, focussing on the national curriculum and preparation for national exams.  Children have been busy practicing reading in Khmer in preparation for the literacy tests they'll be sitting in the new year. To help them prepare, they have been given new UWS schoolbags filled with pens, paper and workbooks, as well as access to lots of new books in the school library.

It goes without saying that none of this would be possible without the continued support of all of us at Witham Hall. It's fantastic to see how many children are now attending the school each day and I look forward to keeping you updated on the school's further progress in the new year.
