Laetitia, one teacher of us went during her last holidays to Senegal. She came in my classroom and She shared her experience with her visit in a School with photos and comments. Courses are given in french even if they don't SPEAK this langage at home.
They are more than 40 per class they have few material but they possess a great desire to learn and a big respect for School like their families.
We compared our lives in School and we decorated baobabs (symbol of africa) with colourful patterns found on the internet. During this work, I asked my pupils aged 6 and 8 to think of those kids who do not have the material that we have.
