Ten years ago, we made a video about some of our pupils and their hopes and aspirations. We caught up with one of them to find out how she is doing.

After completing her Primary Leaving Exams and O' Levels, Daidai started a teacher training course in April this year. She is studying for a three-year certificate in early childhood development and is currently doing her internship at Child of Hope.

Every Saturday, Daidai is given an assignment to complete, and she gets a supervisory visit three times a month. They observe her teaching, lesson plans and displayed materials, and she receives guidance. The training continues during the holidays whilst Daidai boards at the college. It is intense, with lessons from 7.30am to 6.30pm Monday to Saturday, and Sunday from 11am to 6pm!

She would love to return to Child of Hope when she is a fully qualified teacher. We wish her all the best and look forward to seeing her progress.
