Under the leadership of Louise McNamara the English curriculum at our schools has undergone a revolutionary change. The Curriculum and text books from the UK and USA have been replaced. Louise with the assistance of Katherine Zerounian has re-written the curriculum, created resources and conducted teacher training.

The result is a best practise English course available to all our students in the squatter communities. All 586 students in our schools now undertake a 30 minute English lesson every school day. To the left is Peppa Pig helping Grade 1 students learn English at Phoum Boun Community School.
