Our time at Tang CS coincided with the inauguration of the new Special Needs class. The resources Barb had sent from Australia, through Rotary, as well as the laptop and iPad from Moorland PS were put to excellent use in the new classroom. My friend Ruth, who has much more expertise than I in Special Ed also provided some excellent teaching aids and information for the teachers.
Barb and I offered ideas for organising the room. We colour coded boxes and labels (surprise!), laminated instructions and suggested what furniture might be suitable. The children with Special Needs spent some time with us before the official opening, then on the day performed beautifully in the classroom doing various activities for The Dzongda and representatives from the Ministry of Education.
We were again considered special guests and were treated like royalty…not something I was comfortable with, but I managed to behave appropriately! The students presented a number of musical items and again we had front row seats!
On Thursday and Friday we participated in staff development activities with two delightful presenters Karma and Pema. It really was a privilege to be involved and appreciated so much for our contribution.
