In Padri Vjeko Centre, students are doing good practical work; the carpentry students produce furniture and the tailoring students had made different styles of clothing. The visitors enjoyed seeing the students’ level of quality in their practical works and the protocol team was there to guide them along.

Afterwards, two students (Ruhumuriza and Sandrine) sang together - a nice song talking about school and trades in Padri Vjeko Centre. At this point we all heard a speech from the parents’ representative, where he gave thanks to school and everybody who is committed to make the school as good as it has become. We then enjoyed traditional Burundian dancing and drumming because we have students from Burundi at our school and they also wanted to entertain like the others! It was a very good display of their dance and cultural drumming……so nice to watch.
