“What have been the participation and the feedback of the students have they been enjoying these activities?"

 

Teacher


“Well, yes because everyday parents have been telling me that they get up in the morning and they ask me what are we going to do today, what is next, where are we going, what activity are we going to have and they really enjoy it and when we have a normal class they get inside the classroom and the speak about it they are better to answer to the questions better and they get to relate what we did on the activity and just speak fluently about what we have been doing.”


The day saw the participation of the Yo Creek, San Lazaro, Trial Farm, Chan Pine Ridge, Guardian Angel, August Pine Ridge, Carmen's and Palmar Pre-School.
