We see this lots in Paraguay too.
We have solved it here by:
1. Using a .xo bundle to install /home/olpc/Activities/.groups
pointing to http://schoolserver/activities
see http://wiki.laptop.org/go/Software_update#Activity_groups
2. Importing all the activities into the XS activity server
see http://wiki.laptop.org/go/XS-activity-server
3. Improving the in-school behaviour of the activity updater
see http://dev.laptop.org/ticket/9259

Then when the children delete activities, restoring them is just a few
clicks...run the activity updater from the control panel and let it do
it's thing. It is working well so far.
