Last week was our final session on story reading with year 2 student teachers at Gulu Core Primary Teacher’s College. We finished our 5-week mini project with students planning to read a story aloud (yep, lesson plan and all!) and then reading aloud to us.

What an incredible 5 weeks! We journeyed a long way in a short amount of time and pray that these student teachers will remember a lot of what was shared and put it into practise in their classrooms next year.

A huge thank you to all our reading ambassadors from a variety of different organisations around Gulu – thanks for sharing this journey with us and volunteering your time to help us out! We, and the students, thank you!

Considering and planning how to pilot a similar training with some of our more enthusiastic local primary schools.
