After a busy week Sister Rose and Sister Rajamani joined us for Family Learning Morning. They spent time producing some wonderful Colum patterns and then had time to visit all the classrooms and look at the range of activities the children and their families were able to enjoy during the morning.
Mrs MacLauchlan then took the Sisters shopping for some final gifts and souvenirs to take back to India. The first stop was Asda where a large quantity of chocolates were purchased. The next stop was Woodlands Nursery where the Sisters enjoyed looking at and selecting some Christmas decorations and handbags for the Sisters back at home.
It was then time for something to eat and drink. The afternoon went quickly as there were such a lot to see and it was soon time to return to Hinckley and finish the packing. Mrs Fox was shocked by the number of carrier bags the Sisters returned with and she later had to find another suitcase as there was simply not enough room for all the shopping to fit in!
Later in the evening it was time to set off to Birmingham airport where the flight left for Dehli. The connecting flight to Chennai was delayed by one and a half hours but Sister Rose has emailed to let us know they have now arrived back in Pondicherry.
Sister Rose and Sister Rajamani say a big thank you to everyone for making them feel so welcome. They had a wonderful visit and have taken back to India a lot of happy memories and some great ideas they will share with the staff at St Mathias.
