CORDE staff retreat 2010

Last week CORDE had its very first staff retreat across 3 days from the 18 – 20 November. The first 2 days of the retreat took place in a conference room at the Spring Park Hotel around the corner from the CORDE office in Battambang town, while the 3rd day was an outing for the team to some fresh water streams at Chror Lounge Bopta and Sek Sork. Approximately 30 CORDE staff members from both UniED and ComED were able to attend each day of the retreat. The purpose of the retreat was to reflect on the past year, remind ourselves of CORDE’s vision, objectives and direction and spend time together in fellowship and getting to know each other more as a team.

CORDE Parent Workshop at CCL15 November 2010

On 23 October 2010, Theary and the ComED team held a parent workshop at CCL14 in Kamakar Village, Sangkat Svaypor in Battambang Town. The workshop fell on the same day as Battambang’s water festival, which made for tough competition in getting a large number of parents from the community to attend. However, the workshop was greatly supported by CORDE staff and UniED students who were there to talk with parents from the community about CORDE’s education programs and answered any questions they had. We appreciate the support in attendance from the UniED students and CORDE staff.
