Summer Trip to Nigeria - Part 1
A summer trip has been planned for travel to the Kaduna area of Nigeria from July 25-August 10. Board member Elaine Chagnon has plans to go. While travel to the school site will be impossible due to security issues for Westerners traveling to Zamfara state, the plan is that the teachers will travel to her. Plans for teachers from Grace International School include further skill development for the teaching of reading, math and writing workshops, computer training, and working with the Peace Club curriculum of the Mennonite Central Committee, in Jos Nigeria. that was acquired last summer.
In addition, arrangements are being made for teachers from area schools in Kaduna to attend a second set of workshops using the same format.
Last year, plans for travel to the north changed after arrival in Nigeria. Communications have already started to formulate a more proactive schedule of teacher training, given the state of unrest at the current time.
