Our AGM took place on Thursday 14th June at the John Adams Hall in Endsleigh Street WC1. It went very well, as the pictures show. We were addressed over lunch by Lord Paul Boateng, on his birthday, as it happens!, who inspired us all to carry on our work. He said that the three “R”s were, of course, very important, but so too were the three “H”s – the Head for wisdom, the Hand for practical action and the Heart for constancy. We will try, Paul, we will try! The afternoon saw reports on Sandema, Wulugu, Abonse, Hia, Daffor-Awudome, and the Let’s Read Project. Jo Hallett had just returned from Upper East Region where she had helped with teacher-training and testing the efficacy of the Let’s Read programme. She had good reports, but there is still so much work to be done, both in infrastructure and in education.
The AGM heard a report on the new website, which seemed much appreciated, though is still a “work in progress”. The current committee was voted in again, “nem con”.
