India Link Trip - Day Five

india-day05A bumpy road led the way to Madanpur Khada this morning but at the end we were again greeted with a garland of marigolds and a piece of art work created by one of the teachers.  We were first taken to an assembly where all the children were waiting in orderly lines.  Today’s songs were as energetic as yesterdays and we even got to see some traditional Indian dancing that the children had prepared.  Straight after assembly we went on a guided tour and spent a small amount of time in each class talking to the children and teachers.  Some of the younger children had been asked to come to school in traditional Western dress, a few of their interpretations were very interesting.  In the afternoon we worked with a group of children on preparing a short script, they wrote about themselves, their families and about their ambitions in life.  Once completed we then recorded them speaking and will use this as part of our international schools project, linking the three schools.
In the evening we travelled across Delhi to visit the Imperial Hotel where we had ‘High Tea’.  Tomorrow we will be visiting the smallest of the Good Samaritan schools, Dakshinpuri.
