Good-bye Georgetown, Hello Essequibo River!

Wow, so we have just wrapped up our final week here in Georgetown! Hard to believe how fast those 7 weeks have gone by! Kate and Kevin are permanently re-joining us tonight, as tomorrow morning all six of us leave for the Essequibo River to do some work up there before heading home. 

In our final classes, we answered many questions, left contact information for resources around Georgetown, and played a game we invented – “QH-uh-O” – where students would answer review questions in hopes of gaining points (and risk the chance of an “uh-O” where they would loose all points)! The students loved it and had so much fun working together in teams to make sure they answered questions correctly. We were so impressed by the amount of information they remembered! This game was a super fun way to wrap up everything we had taught during the past 2 months. 

In many of our classes we awarded personalized QHO completion certificates to each of the student at the end of our final class. In some of our larger classes, we awarded a framed certificate to the school as a whole. We hope that it is able to signify how proud we are of all the students and their hard work during our time here. So many of the students have touched us in ways that words will do no justice. 

This week has been a roller coaster of emotions for all of us; so happy to have had the opportunity to work with so many wonderful people, yet so sad to be having to say goodbye.

Lots of love,

Allie, Adam, Haily & Janet
