This week, Ramathan shared with me some pictures of a special sculpture he's built in the grounds of Katunguru School. He says:
"We have an elephant sculpture in our school compound. We feed it with plastic bottles as a demonstration to show the community members that poor disposal of plastic can destroy the environment."
The photos below show some pupils from the Primary Four class adding some more bottles to the elephant. These bottles will be used to make more bins and tree shelters in the future.
I thought the children in Uganda might be interested to find out about our class pets, so I sent over some photographs of the chickens (Florence Fluffy Toes, Honey and Jiggly), the guinea pigs (Parsley and Sage), and the newest addition to our Catherington family, Freddie the dog. Ramathan tells me that some of the children in Katunguru School had never seen a guinea pig before, so they were very excited to see our pictures. I also found out that the people living in the village don't have dogs, but some do keep cats as pets!
