School Report: Cooking, computers and crafts

Teacher Madam Nelly brings us the weekly report from Happy House School:
 We are now in the fourth week of term and all our activities are running smoothly and to plan.
New pupils who joined us have settled in well.
Our school is, for now, divided with primary classes still in Happy House while the kindergarten is happily on the new site. Everyone is looking forward to being together again soon when the primary school is completed.
Thursday  is our games day when, after classes at 3 pm, pupils and teachers  take part in various team sports  like football, netball and volleyball. 
Everybody enjoys being active and and understands how important exercise is to health and wellbeing.
On Saturday,  we had lifeskills activities.
 Mama Sue was in charge of the baking class with  Musyoka,  Margaret and Kezia assisting the baking group with her.
Other skills included the local craft of broom making,  gardening ,sewing and  and feet and hand treatments for more of our little one!
Pupils choose the activity they would like to take part in, depending on  age and interest.
The kids are really enjoying the activities because they are gaining important skills to assist them in their future life.
We also had football match Happy House team against Mwamba. 

With yesterday's donations, including money kind raised by Thornton Cleveleys Inner Wheel Club last night, were are 58 per cent of the wat to our £4,000 total.  Every £10 buys 25 of the 66,000 tiles needed to complete the roof of our primary school. Work is well underway. Please help us to get it finished by donating online at or you can send a cheque payable to Happy House to Elizabeth Gomm at 6 Burwood Drive, Blackpool, FY3 8NS. Thank you.
