Ronalli came down yesterday, she got everything done in the day so headed off last night, they are long days for her when she comes as she leaves her house at 4am and usually wouldn't get back till after midnight. But it was good to see her!
 
Today a new child started in preschool. She comes from a family where her dad uses drugs and physically abuses her mum. Only last week, her dad hit her mum on the head which meant she had to stay in hospital for a few days. It's awful to think what these kids see at home - to look at them, you would think they are "normal" children but we can never know what is really going on.
 
There's a boy in preschool called Barnock who has behavioral problems (I think he has signs of AHD). I decided yesterday that he would have my attention during the teaching part of preschool so I've started to sit with him and help him do his work. It's early days but it did seem to concentrate for a longer period today and he didn't hit me! I think he just needs some individual attention.
 
O and I think my voice is about to go.....the people of Hambantota are very happy!!
