American volunteer Charlotte Mara, from Princeton, New Jersey, is settling into life at the Happy House.
After a welcome from the children, student Charlotte was introduced to our way of doing things and now has a rota of work within the school and home timetables.
Her first morning was helping in the nursery section and, after lunch, she went into Class Two to take a handwriting class.
Uncle Billy's photo call was a tall order for Jane, who stood on a stool to reach the board for this picture, but Charlotte soon rolled it down to the kids' level when the class got underway. Also pictured is day pupil Hamisi waiting his turn.
Welcome to the family, Charlotte. Enjoy your stay.
