The theme of this week is definitely “teacher training”. We were asked to provide some training in biblical integration for another primary school about 45 minutes from the Timothy Centre. Beth Pipe Primary School is part of the ministry of Eagle’s Wings Children’s Village started by a retired couple from Manitoba, Canada about eight years ago. This amazing couple decided to use their retirement funds to start a home for orphaned children and provide Christian-based education for them. It was a privilege to be able to help them with some teacher training on Monday and Tuesday before their students reported for the new school year today. Teachers were eager to learn and participated with keen interest.
Then yesterday and today, our administrators of the Timothy Girls’ College facilitated the first in-service training for the new staff members who will begin teaching this month. It is especially exciting to see two teachers from our Kibaale Community Schools conduct some of these sessions. Peter (director in Kibaale) and Stephen (head of our Education Commitee in Kibaale) have developed excellent skills over the years and presented inspiring workshops! Timothy Girls’ College teachers are off to a great start!
