We were very happy this week to welcome Arnau back from Medan. Ayu and I are glad to have an extra person around to teach classes, after we passed a very busy couple of weeks. We have had continuing registrations from the recruitment we have done recently, and some of our elementary school classes are full to bursting. The children are extremely enthusiastic and full of energy; it’s a workout teaching a class, especially in the hottest part of the day. But I’m impressed by their dedication, and it makes it all worth it.

This week we have been learning how to debate in the junior high school English class, and we are preparing for a big showdown on Monday between team motorbike and team bicycle. The students are stretching to the edge of their ability, but finding the words to go beyond, as they get passionately caught up in their argument. It’s great to see them applying their knowledge in this way.
