Patterson’s blog: Howzat? Moet welcomes English visitors for a game of cricket!

Have you ever experienced a visit that you feel you may not forget for the rest of your life?

They also visited all of classes from standard 1 to 8. Pupils were really interested to find out about their favourite game which is cricket. Howzat? Would you be interested in finding out… Read More

Volunteer Rowan’s 2nd week at MOET – August 2016

It was all fun and games for Rowan in his second week at MOET: This week saw me making my teaching debut at MOET, as I was assigned to teach English and Geography to MOET graduates who return in the summer holidays for supplementary secondary lessons (free of charge). My first English lesson was on modifiers; of which according to the grammar book I referenced there are three types; positive, comparative and superlative. I found it initially difficult to gauge the class (Form 4 next year, the final year of secondary), but was soon given an explanation as to why… Read More

18 year old Rowan volunteers for a month at MOET July-Aug 2016

Rowan’s first week and first impressions…… I’ve just completed the first week of my month in Malawi where I’m at MOET school, doing some work with returning secondary students and some football coaching later on in my stay.  Before leaving London I had been under the impression my journey to Malawi was a long one;  a total of about 24 hours; but on the plane to South Africa my neighbour was a Canadian architect travelling to the Gambia. His journey duration dwarfed mine. He had had to fly from Vancouver to London before heading to Africa with me; when he… Read More

VOLUNTEER UPDATE FROM KATE – Week 12 Friday 3rd July

Not one of my better weeks. I’ve been Struck Down with a cold since Monday. Hopefully I’m on the mend now. The weekend was a nice one however. Last Friday, we had a school trip Monkey Bay! We set off in 3 pick-ups, the kids rode in the back and sang songs on the way. Monkey Bay is a Trading Centre about 40 minutes north up the lakeshore, with a big boatyard – it’s there where most of Lake Malawi’s boats get built and registered. But we were going there for sports, to play matches against another primary school. MOET’s… Read More

VOLUNTEER UPDATE FROM KATE – Week 13 Friday 10th July

An uneventful, happy week really. Maybe because I’ve got Ruth to look forward to. I am SO excited to see her, and to see what she makes of it all – this Malawi life which has become familiar to me, but actually seems like worlds away from Whashton life! Last Saturday we had the Education Day at Koche primary school. There were plenty of people there. It was interesting to see the children from other schools, and the messages about teenage pregnancy and sanitation came across really well. The MOET kids did a great job with their drama! It was… Read More
