All students at Kambui were sent home March 19, 2020 and the school remained closed until just recently. On October 12 students finally began to return to the school, a few at a time. The principal has reported that they have room to maintain the social distance required by the Ministry of Health, but their two greatest challenges are the provision of face masks and hand sanitizer. Parents are supposed to provide these BUT most students are arriving at the school, without. At the OK Kids October board meeting it was decided that we would provide some financial support for the purchase of hand sanitizer and masks. Although some disposable masks could be purchased, it was suggested that fabric be purchased and reusable masks be created in the sewing centre at Kambui. Masks with a transparent window in the front would be optimal for lip reading and so the board suggested that they utilize their sewing centre and teach the children to create masks– hence fulfilling a need and learning a skill at the same time. This particular type of masks are more difficult to locate, and the making of masks could possibly even provide a way to generate and income for the school.
