Our next journey was to the nursery/primary school at Jagindi Tasha. We drove for about 40 minutes before arriving at the school, built in the early 1970’s. This school was much closer to the main road, but still considered a rural school based on the location away from town. There were two small classroom blocks, with a third one started. The rooms were filled with students, similar to Kogum River.
While the buildings were in better overall condition than Kogum River, renovations were still needed to all of the classroom blocks. The buildings were in need of new roofs and new plastering of the walls. Noticeably absent were instructional aides for instruction; teachers work to educate their students with little more than a blackboard and chalk.
The depth of the need continues to be revealed as we traveled from one site to the next- there are so many children to educate...my mind was spinning as to what could be done to help. And I was wondering what I would see at the last site...
