On October 15th, as part of our current Journey Outreach work, we revisited Got Agulu Primary School in Konuong’a location, Rachuonyo District, where almost a year ago we had a grand reception and facilitated an introductory day workshop including all teachers, the nearly 400 pupils of the school, and even parents and local community members. The result of this one day event was that the school came out No.1 in the National exams held 3 weeks later and to this day teachers in charge testify to the huge improvement The Journey has brought to the school.
Again we were most warmly welcomed and hosted by the teacher in charge, Ms. Euphrasia, and our dear friend, recent Journey Intensive Grad Harrison Okoth who teaches at this school. And even more so by this years class 8 exam candidates who not only remembered every aspect of the Journey process they’d undertaken a year ago – from going down the stairs, to greeting the mentor, boarding the magical vehicle, arriving in the body, setting up campfire, balloons, forgiveness etc.! – but gave us standing ovations with beaming faces once they’d been taken through another process by our capable team members Linet Achieng and Anderson Shivaji.
Once again, the school urged Journey Outreach to set up and include them in a follow-up programme which they can benefit from on a regular basis. The recognition is still there that the Journey is a most powerful and effective intervention, empowering both pupils and teachers to excel at what they’re doing.
Thank you, God Agulu, for the warm reception!
