Peter, our Senior Mechanic and three second year students have been progressing on one of the MfA project vehicles. A Toyota mini bus which was brought in completely run down. Peter and Fanwell guide the students with them doing most of the work. They gain great practical experience and skills that will last a lifetime.
Well done to our Mechanic-Gift, on providing some excellent training and experience to four of our first year students. Must be cosy under the car with five of you!
MfA loves to invest in the future and the next generation of Mechanics. For the first time we ran a high school mechanics course. Lots of practical experience and classroom activities, the students learnt so much and enjoyed the week. Big thank you to the companies that sponsored students: Tandala Rentals, Euro Steel, Non-Ferrous Metals, Ndola motor-cross club and MfA.
MfA Staff Family Fun Day! Once a year we celebrate and give a big thank you to the staff for the hard work that goes on each day at MfA. This year we had BBQ at Pauls Ponds in Ndola, with volley ball, fishing, jumping castle, walks, rafting and the Ginger Juggler giving a small performance. Lots of fun and enjoyment was had by all! Thank you to the staff team and enjoy the holiday season.
Our high school course is coming to an end today with some more practical training in the workshop.
We have had the privilege of hosting UK visitors- Neil and Rosemary Genders. They are long term supporters and sponsor a few MfA students. They have been on a tour of Southern Africa, catching up with friends and came to stay for a few days. So lovely to meet them and show the progress MfA has made since they last came at the very beginning.
It is the start of the holidays for the college, however the workshop doesn't stop. The MfA Workshop has 4 second year industrial placements students growing their skills and practical experience. 8 first years have also volunteered and are learning fast- Practical log books are filling up and a great record of the hard work each student does.
The MfA workshop team have been out and about at the International Trade Fair in Ndola this month. Promoting the work that MfA does in the workshop and the college. Lots of conversations and building relationships with all that came to the stand.
It was Sponsors Day at MfA last week. Many of the Students sponsors from around Ndola and Zambia came to MfA to find out about term 1 and 2 results and the work that the students are undertaking. Many thanks for your support and making the time to come.
