Chicks settle in new nest

Our little chicks are settling down in their new classrooms in our Little Chicks nursery.
The kind Italians, who raised the money to convert the building, should be proud of their efforts which allowed us to convert the old chicken house into nursery classrooms making room, in turn, for our first primary classes to open upstairs.

Moving in day coincided with some really heavy rain but everyone just got on with the job in hand - nursery assistant Lydia improvising with a carrier bag as a rain hat!
The new classrooms are bright and air, the makuti thatch keeps everything cool, and the enclosed play space ensures no little chicks can wander away from the nest.

The converted building has been so well received by everyone who has visited it - the Italians especially, but also with the district education officer who was astounded by what had been done.

It's all down to Sue, who never short on ideas, saw this as the quickest and cheapest solution to a problem which had to be solved straight away.

What a clever mother hen she is!
