Assembly on Uganda & Gratitude

This morning a familiar face visited the school to deliver an Assembly. Y5 and Y6 children will recognise Josh from their time at African Adventure and he came to explain a typical ‘Day in the Life’ of a villager from Uganda.

The children were amazed to see that the villagers would out in the field working by 5am, it would take 30 minutes to bring fresh water up from their well, food is in short supply and is lengthy to cook, they may travel from place to place on motorbikes (with 5 passengers). All in all, life is very different in Uganda. This helped the children to consider what they are grateful for in their lives…their houses, their food…their families.

Josh shared a couple of African thoughts…

” A fish is the last to acknowledge the existence of water”

“Give thanks for a little and you will find a lot”
