Swedish Visitors Spend Day Two at School

Wednesday, March 27, 2013, marked the second day of the guests’ visit and stay at the Help Liberia Foundation Community School in Buchanan.

And, like Day One, Day Two was characterized by various activities, some of which are as follows:

1. We had another interactive session where the staff and the children sang songs, gave recitations, told jokes and our guests also sang, danced and talked to the kids and staff more about Sweden.

2. Our female teachers and students taught the visitors how to play knock foot (a Liberian female game) and other plays.

3. There were jump-rope mini-competitions in which our visitors, staff and students happily participated, with each trying to prove that they could do the jumping rope for minutes without being entangled by the rope.

4. Lena and her husband (Anders) presented the gifts they brought for the school – football, notebooks, pens, telephones, a camera, some books, etc.

Of course, we could not just do all those activities without resting to put something in the stomach, so we all ended and went for a dish of palm butter rice, a typical traditional dish.

Watch out for the article and photos for Day Three.
