'Supporting families and
young people to achieve...'
The Nursery has been back open for over a month in the Jan Jan Bureh region of The Gambia. Lessons are well underway and, thanks to funding from outside sources, the physical development of the school continues.
As part of our monthly communication with JJB, the school sent us an update on what has been happening. They told us that, although power cuts are a regular occurrence in The Gambia, this time, the power was out for the most part of the week. They also told us that the lessons were going well and that meals continues to be cooked and enjoyed every day by the children.
From the weekly report, they also told us that the new toilets have almost finished being plastered. The masoner has moulded 1 bag of cement blocks to be used to make the Pre-Nursery door.
The work never stops at the nursery and we are pleased of the constant updates to infrastructure and development that are undergoing. For example, a new door has recently been added to a toilet at the school.
This is a photo of the new toilet door:
Here is what else the trustees of JJB told us:
The parents meeting is being held to discuss the sustainability of the nursery and the need for parents to contribute towards running costs.
The Early Years advisers are to visit our nursery next Monday. Tida (the headteacher) has arranged this and will pay for their accommodation, food, transport and their daily fee.
The advisers will help us find a qualified Early Years teacher who will be responsible for the curriculum and raising the standards of teaching and learning throughout the nursery. This teacher will also liaise with the community. They are also going to advise us on training for the unqualified teachers.
The Early Years teacher will be a great help to the nursery and shows the continued progress in ensuring the children’s learning is a priority.
If you would like to make a donation to JJB to help with fees, lunches or developing more of the school, head over to the Contact Us page and we will get back to you with the next steps!
