United Kingdom

I thoroughly enjoyed my time at Gokuldham of Nar school. When I arrived I recently finished a teacher training course in London, and was impressed by the dedication and enthusiasm of the teachers and pupils. During a typical day I had a delicious breakfast with the school community, helped with assemblies, teaching the students English songs and talking about life in England. During the day I enjoyed teaching lessons to pupils and a learnt a great deal from the teachers at the school, the pupils were so hard working and eager to learn. I was made to feel extremely welcome at the school, and nothing was too much trouble. The room I stayed in was very comfortable and air conditioned, which was appreciated in the monsoon heat. I was also shown the fascinating sights of Gujarat during the weekend and meet many of the teachers’ family for tea in the evening. I hope to return to the school sometime soon and look forward to seeing the new school building and temple, and meeting the many friends I made during my stay.
