THANK YOU ARTEVELDEDOGESCHOOL FOR THIS AMAZING OPPORTUNITY!
Our OT, Nicole McDonald, and our Day Care manager, Lindelwa Mnweba were selected to go over to Belgium to attend an 2 week long Inclusive Education Workshop. They arrived on Saturday the 17th November. Here is an update from them:
“We are 2 of 18 delegates from Vietnam, Ecuador, Suriname, Zambia, Zimbabwe and South Africa. We have been given a very generous allowance which means that we can really experience Gent and go home with lots of memories…
We attended our first lot of lectures today, which has already been very interesting with lots of discussion about the way inclusion works in other countries. We have been faced with our thoughts and ideas on inclusion and have already been challenged on our way of thinking.
With Belgium Chocolate being so famous- we have a selection at every break to help ourselves to, which we are definitely not complaining about!! It is cold and overcast- but that is what we expected and may have been disappointed to have carried all that heavy luggage, only to arrive to warm weather 🙂 Will be in touch…”
