Yes, the new school year has started, and the children and the teachers and other staff members are working together to have a successful academic year.
However, before the start of the school year on September 5, Help Liberia Foundation Community School held a two-day teachers’ workshop – from Wednesday, August 31, to Thursday, September 1 – on the school’s campus.
Four lecturers were invited to conduct the workshop, which was aimed at professionally preparing the teachers before entering the classroom and molding the minds of the kids, but only three agreed to come – Mr. Andrew Garsuah, Mr. Joseph Garnio and Mr. Isaiah Ceegar.
Mr. Ceegar lectured on Lesson Planning; Mr. Garsuah presented on Classroom Management, and Mr. Garnio lectured on Teaching Methodology. The workshop was needful for the teachers. The inter-activity of the presentations of the topics made it even more interesting.
We have planned to conduct another workshop for the teachers before the start of the second semester, which will be in February 2012.
Our heartfelt thanks to the lecturers who presented, to the teachers who made use of the presentations and the support staff members who prepared the food and other things for the workshop. Of course, we cannot forget to mention all those who continue to support the school directly or indirectly.
