Chloe McGuire has arrived in rural India, to start her year long volunteer work to teach English to poor children to hopefully give them better life chances in their futures. Part of her latest post says: 'I’m really bonding with my classes. My students are honestly great. I have a few cheeky students but classes wouldn’t be as fun without them, I embrace the challenge – although sometimes they really do try and push their luck. I’ve introduced some craft items from the U.K into my English classes and students absolutely love them! Pompoms, pipe cleaners and googly eyes… as soon as the students clocked them they started telling me how beautiful I was and were jumping at the chance to help me in anyway they could. Ha, thanks kids, it’s hilarious watching them trying to earn rewards with flattery! They’re so undeniably cute, we really enjoy lessons together and I love watching them get involved. They excel in their English speaking and reading – pronunciation and meanings are something they struggle with though. Today I taught a lesson on loving and respecting everyone around us, especially those in need. I gave out pipe cleaner hearts to all of the students to signify love and caring – they understood this token and were unbelievably happy with the gesture.’
Our children helped raise over £600 to help her achieve this. Chloe is a former pupil and we were so proud to be supporting her in this worthwhile, and life changing, work. Click on her photo & keep up to date with her blog.
