From Gace with love ..

Our Oscar was thrilled to get this lovely drawing from his sponsor "sister" Grace.
Grace who lives in the beautiful English countryside with her mummy and daddy, Louise and Garry Webster and baby sister Alice, created her own impression of our Happy House garden.
Oscar was delighted with it, and is looking forward to meeting you as soon as baby Alice is older enough for an African adventure!
Times tables
Sue has set a challenge to teaching staff x every pupil in school.
She discovered, by chance, that our older children had no idea of their nine times table, and when she delved a bit deeper discovered that multiplication isn't factored in to school until much later in Kenya than it is here.
So Sue, knowing how important tables are throughout life, has challenged teachers to ensure that every child - regardless of whether they are at our nursery or Sawa Sawa will have a thorough grasp of multiplication.
And, as she wants to make sure learning is fun, not a chore,we are appealing for any colourful and entertaining multiplication teaching aids you may no longer need or, perhaps, if you are looking to buy something for your sponsor child. It's always best when a child gets something he or she can share with their brothers and sisters.
A rap dvd of tables is already on the way, which the charity has purchased, but if you can help at all our address is Sue Hayward's Happy House, PO Box 796, Watamu, Kenya, East Africa.
