Extra Mile August 2019

News of the severe flooding in Freetown reminds us of the struggles students, staff, volunteers and builders have to make to deliver Extra Mile’s vision of a high quality education for poor and vulnerable children.


Volunteers have been training staff in providing active learning strategies for our students. Here we see our Express class students participating in Active Reading to improve their literacy skills.


Our latest volunteer Lauran Trumper got down to work quickly with staff revisiting work on increasing challenge in the students’ work using Bloom’s taxonomy.


Preparing the building for floating the concrete roof later this week. Taking advantage of some rare better weather in the rainy season.
