Yesterday we met with a Filipino pastor who had been hovering for a couple of weeks, interested in the school. Today it was all go - a letter drafted telling parents that Stepping Stones lives on; a new manager (Marina) who is a trained teacher and has run a Montesorri school - and our three Khmyer staff all keep their positions.

Communicating with parents - there is class tomorrow!
It has all been something of a whirl-wind, and no doubt it will involve us taking some time to help in the change-over ... but we are thrilled. Our staff are gold and we are just so pleased for them as well as for the future of this little pre-school.
First things first tho' - now that our six weeks looking after Sozo Childrens Home is also finished, we have a date with Club Evergreen this Friday/Saturday.
