Grace: Today we went for a walk with a girl called Joy to get to the local primary school. The school was pretty small. Joy's sister Julie is the teacher at the school. They didn't use desks in the shcool the kids sat on the floor with pieces of wood and really old tatty exersise books.We gave the school a few reading books, pens and pencils and exersise books. The kindy kids at that school had made models of boats with proper sail made of tarp. After we got back to the side of the island we are anchored on, Mum and Dad started chatting with a man named Ishmael and his wife Grace. Grace had weaved a bag out of Pandanus. The bag is natrural and purple with a local design. Right now we still owe Grace a few T-shirts and things.
Thanks Grace - tomorrow morning we are sailing te 27nm to Misima Is and we will be giving a lift to the Pastor from Panapompom Is as well. Until tomorrow,
