Well, I must admit I have been missing for a while. The past weeks have been tiring and busy for me. My students and I have been busy with lessons and a number of activities that we were doing. As a comeback post, allow me to share with you my sincere joy and gratitude to the newly appointed Art of Giving Ambassador for Malawi , Miss. Winnie Mwamsamali who paid my school an unforgettable visit on 17th May 2016.
On this day May 17 2016, was Art of Giving celebration Day and different nations in Africa and countries in Asia took time to celebrate art of giving as they touched lives of the vulnerable communities through giving and spending time with such communities (you can read more through this link; http://www.artofgiving.co.uk). The theme for this day was Education for All. In Malawi, the ceremony took place on at my school Chitete Primary. You might wish to know that my school has about 97 pupils with only Standard One to Standard Three.
It was indeed an afternoon of bliss at Chitete. The day was celebrated in an amazing day and many activities were incorporated to spice up the event. The event started at 1pm with the Malawi Art of Giving Brand Youth Ambassador, Miss Winnie Mwamsamali and the school kids playing netball in a friendly competition between girls and boys at the school. The kids were very happy and joyful. The sport took about 20 minutes and we later proceeded to an official start of the ceremony.
Present at the start of the ceremony were; the Malawi Art of Giving Brand Youth Ambassador, Miss Winnie Mwamsamali, the school teachers, Mr Chadodoma, Mr Misomali, Mrs. Kalolo, Mr. Symon, the school deputy head-teacher, two local comedians, Mr Shaibu and Mr Chiwaula and of course myself. The official opening of the ceremony started with a word of prayer by one of the school kids and this was later followed by a welcome speech and encouragement on education from the school deputy Head teacher, Mr Symon. The Malawi Art of Giving Ambassador then came in to explain the Art of Giving Celebration and why we ought to have a giving culture as humans.
After gifts presentations, the Deputy Head-teacher couldn't contain it but stood up and conveyed his message of gratitude on behalf of the kids. The presents served as an encouragement to the kids present and their friends who were absent from school on that day.
