NEWSLETTER - Volume 19 - August 2006
Hello to all of our participants!
We hope that you all is well with you and your students. We know that many of you are on summer vacation and we hope you are resting and enjoying your vacations. We want to update you on what has been happening with City Quest.
We have several new reports turned in that are published on our site now.
---De Wadden Primary School of Haarlem, The Netherlands have created a wonderful website featuring information concerning the fact that many children in Kenya, Africa do not get to go to school. De Wadden students created this site to make people aware of this problem and to let them know what they can do to help. Their website includes information about Kenya and also Africa itself. It is a Dutch ThinkQuest project.
The project is titled: "Sema ndio Kwa Watoto" which means "Say Yes to the Children!" You can visit it by clicking here. This site will be included and linked on our listing of reports on CityQuest.
---24 Senior High School of West Java, Bandung, Indonesia - reports on Proclamation Monument, their waterfalls, and the Monument of Rawagede.
---SMA Negeri 23 Bandung West Java Indonesia - reports on several historical buildings found there including Sri Baduga Museum, the Sate Building, and Tegalega Monument, among several other reports!
---Centro Britanico of Sao Paulo, Brazil in South America - reports on the Municipal Theater, Sugar Loaf's Cable Car, and Viaduto do Cha.

If any of you past participants have any new reports to add to your page on CQ, just drop us a line here and we will be sure to add your new report to your section of City Quest. Also, please let us know if there is anything we can do to help you with your students' reports.
The Ukunda Project, which we have told you about in the past, has a new name now. It is called the Foundation Ukunda Schools Project .
The main goal of Ukunda Project is to raise funds to help the very poor schools in Kenya. Your school can help too! Visit Ukunda Project's website to see how. This project was started by Rene de Vries and his family. Rene is a cohost of City Quest.
We believe that your city, town, or village is special and we want to help you tell others about how special it is to you and why. Please e-mail us if you have any questions or concerns.
