The day had come at last. We managed to cram so much into each day that this final day sort of crept up on us all. We said our goodbyes to the school today. It was the last day at the school today. Everyone tried very hard to finish all the works. With this in mind, the team managed to hit the tasks this morning with the same enthusiasm that they did on the first day. Well almost the same, no one was looking fondly at the new truck load of dirt. I never thought dirt could be evil until now.
We finished all the tilling, walling and stage for dancing student learn how to dance Khmer tradition dancing. They were so happy to finish all their works before they leave.
The finally we have done everything at the school and then we played with kids in school. It was so much to play with kids.
The stages, the new walls and the tilling make this place more real. It gives this place a sense of being that wasn’t there before. It makes this place more attractive to additional support. The goal is to make this place self-sufficient so that they no longer need to lean on us and we can move onto other schools. These last two weeks and the work that has been accomplished has been a major step towards this goal!
I want to say a big thank you to all the friends and family that have followed this blog all the way through. I have really enjoyed these last two weeks and the experiences I’ve had with the volunteers and being able to share that with you guys.
Thank you for all your support. For those following the village immersion volunteers, you’ll be seeing your loved ones soon! As for the ones following those going to the elephant refuge, we have another adventurous week ahead of us!
