What a wonderful gift was given our group, as we approached the end of our time in Ghana. The kindergarten and preschool teachers decided that the Christmas program should be early, and that the student teachers should be in charge of planning and preparation, as well as implementation! Three young ladies were both excited, and nervous, and did an outstanding job pulling together a fabulous program for all. Santa needed to be cast as well, and Andrew pulled it off beautifully.
Elizabeth made a lovely MC, dressed in her new African outfit, made to order in the Tema marketplace.
Ashley showed her students there wasn't anything in the bag...yet:). Her own African dress was a favorite, and came from our field trip to Cape Coast.
Song and dance are integral parts of the lives of African children, and a Christmas program was no exception. Here, Elizabeth's class, and mentor teacher, start to get in the "groove" as Santa passes out gifts in the background.
Best wishes from our home to yours this blessed Christmas time.
