As followers of my blog are aware, back in February I volunteered with the SchoolBox organization in Nicaragua and assisted with the building of a school in the rural community of Jardines de Apoyo. If you click on the ‘Nicaragua 2014’ menu item you can see all my posts related to this amazing opportunity. I am so excited to share with my followers the videos of the opening ceremonies that were help at the school on July 3rd. If you look through my pictures in my posts you will see just how far the facilities have come in this community.
I am truly honoured to have been a part of this process and I am looking forward to having an opportunity to join a build again. When I return to work in September, I plan on sharing this experience with my grade 5/6 class and hope to inspire them to help make a difference.

I have included a few of the videos of the opening provided by SchoolBox. This is a link to the all videos on the SchoolBox Flickr feed. This is a link to the photos from the opening on the SchoolBox Flicker feed.
