On Friday, we went to the office and then back to the school for a big televised meeting of officers from all over the different districts of the country, representatives from the Ministry of Education (Mineduc) and the Kigali Institute of Education (KIE) where secondary school teachers are trained to degree level to obtain Rwandan QTS. The purpose of the gathering of around 50 people was to demonstrate that the visually impaired were entailed to and could have a good education AND achieve good results. The assembled delegates could not help to be impressed after their visit to the classrooms, resource centre, dormitories and other facilities and hopefully they will start to roll out other schools offering the same kind of education. The highlight for me was seeing older boys playing Goal Ball with a very wide goal, three a side and a ball which made a tinkling sound when it moved. The accuracy was amazing. I felt ashamed of my former football skills!
Last Wednesday we visited the school next door which is an all age
