English lessons keep going...
The English lessons at VMCM are so successful, that Helly
and Morten had to divide the participant to 2 groups! Kids keep
coming from the children’s home, and since the really enjoy it,
they also bring their friends from the home.
„I feel so happy during the lessons. Every time with kids
we learning a lot of new things. I hope we will keep going this
way and I can show to them how interesting can be the English
language learn through games and different occasions. I will do my best to be good
successor of Morten’s work“, said Helly after the second lesson.
LARP – seminar in Poland .
Our volunteer Helly, and Angela, who helps us at the Centre went to
Poland for an interesting seminar. At this seminar they learned a lot
about different occupations with children, they met people from 10
different countries, who could be partners of VMCM in
different project in the future. But the best of all was
that Helly and Angela have an opportunity to become part of the LARP
DREAM TEAM and to learn a lot how to perform Live Action Role playing
Games and use them at the VMCM activities. Also they visit Krakow and
Bochnia and for both girls that was a great experience and chance to gain
more knowledge about this beautiful cities and culture of Poland in general.
The end of November was a sad time for whole
VMCM team and the kids at the Center. After one year in
Velky Meder our volunteer from Denmark left. Morten did a
lot about development of the Center. During his EVS stay he
organized a lot of different activities, especially connected
with his favourite field – Sport. We really miss our friend, but we all happy about him
because immediately after he come back to Denmark Morten find a great job. We wish
him good luck at his „new life“ and hope he will never forget about VMCM and soon will
come to visit us!
Good luck, Morten! We love you!
“What is better than Italian food?” - of course – the Italian girls. The whole team of
VMCM are crossing fingers and hoping that Slovakian National Agency will approve the EVS
project of the new candidate for volunteer in VMCM, Cristina and she will come at the
beginning of February. Cristina is 29 old girl from beautiful Italy. She has a lot of experience
with kids and we are pretty sure that she will became an integral part of VMCM team and will
teach children a lot of new things.
If you ask us:
“What is brand new in Velky
Meder this month?”
The answer is pretty simple – VMCM has new colours. We
was thinking about painting the place for a long time and at the
end this become reality. We are thankful to the students
from school in near village called Okoc, because they
made the painting. Now the entrance with the staircase and the
mirror-room of our Center looks brand new. „I hope that in
January we can re-paint the main room of the Center and make
the place even nicer for our young visitors“, said Judit after the
boys from Okoc has finished the work. We are looking forward
to do that!
So that was it – the November in VMCM - a wonderful month
full of joy, fun, smiling kids and interesting things to do. We hope we
can safe this wonderful spirit for a long time!
