First Day of School – January 8th 2013!

After overcoming many unimaginable obstacles, the Dream Big Montessori School opens its doors January 8th, 2013! Teachers George and Sophie are preparing the classrooms for the start of the school year with Sister Denise’s invaluable help. Registration is well under way as the enrollment climbs. It may not be full for opening day, but this is not uncommon it seems as many adopt a wait-and-see policy on this strange new wonderful project – so unlike anything most have seen. We are told as soon as people see the high level of education we are offering our problem will be a waiting list. A final fundraising blast is happening on this side of the world, to fund final odd jobs like library shelving, weather-proofing, septic tank installation, inspection costs and school supplies – particularly crayons, pencil crayons and watercolours which are difficult to source in-country. Please contact us to help with our final $5000 requirement!¬†Thanks to the extraordinary heart and caring shown to these children from all donors (from our generous corporate sponsors to our lemonade stand kid heroes!) This has truly been a massive team effort – and we are soon realizing our shared dream – GO TEAM DREAM BIG!!!
