v4-10-Interview-September Practice

In Honduras September is the loudest month of the year. Two hours a day, for an entire month, Bay Islands school children prepare for the 15th of September Honduran independence day. Boys practice drumming and girls, some as young as five, practice the pon-pon dance rutine. In the Miguel Alvarez Brick Bay school, 98 students are getting ready for the celebrations. School director Estefi Romero and four teachers are helping with the marching practice and to catch-up on some of the lost classes during the five weeks protests. The classes in the island department have been expanded to include every other Saturday until the November 15 school graduation. Practicing for the march: Vanessa Welcome, Lisy Duarte, Nicole Ramirez, Jaenin Rodriguez, Chery Nixon, Jennifer Valeska. [/private]
