School Outreach Program

Well, what an amazing three months we have had with Emmanuel here in Australia. One  the programs that we have been running that have kept us super busy is our School Outreach Program, which as mentioned in previous blog posts we have been invited into Primary and High Schools throughout Melbourne to share about life in Uganda, the needs there as well as celebration of the culture through drumming classes and bead making workshops. We have visited some incredible schools including Yea High School Ayce, Lilydale West Primary School, Rolling Hills Primary School, Mooroolbark East Primary, Coldstream Primary, Gruyere Primary School and more! Word got about that the program was so great we actually had to turn down a few schools due to time restrictions. A big thank-you to every school for inviting us, every staff member who lent us a helping hand during our workshops and the great generosity shown to us all by your students, staff, teachers and school community, we feel truly blessed!

Today was our last day of this program and it was topped of with our final visit to Mooroolbark East Primary School.. and what an amazing school! The staff, students, principle, everyone was so accommodating towards us and you really made us feel so at home! Thank-you for your incredible generosity towards our programs in Uganda and a big thanks to Matt for organising everything and making sure it all came together!
