News from Nick Humphreys in Guyana Nick Humphreys, pictured here in a Skype conversation with his father Tim,
has sent a lively report from his Project Trust Gap Year placement
as a primary school teacher in the village of Kato in Guyana.
He reports that he is living in teachers’ quarters next to the village school
. “Out the back of the house is the rain forest as far as the eye can see;
out front are the vast plains of the savanna. All around are local families
living with only the bare essentials in mud huts they made themselves.
Teaching has been very enjoyable.
My class is nursery 2 teaching 4 and 5 year olds, and they are a lovely bunch,
Currently I could not be happier with my life and I have all of you at
St Paul’s Church to thank, I will forever be grateful to you all
for helping me get to this amazing country and to be
able to help my school children in such a positive way.
