Our school in Buchanan, Help Liberia Foundation Community School, has closed for the Christmas and New Year’s holidays.

The school closed on Friday, December 20, 2013. It is a two-week break that runs from December 20, 2013, to January 6, 2014. In short, the kids will return on Monday, January 6.

The closing was marked by a program that saw students singing Christmas carols, giving recitations and so forth.

During the program, our director, Mr. Paul Yeenie Harry, encouraged the kids to take care of themselves during this festive season, saying, “You have to take care of yourselves well so that you will be able to come back here on January 6.” He also encouraged them to be more respectful, studious and hard-working in 2014.

Our plan was to buy two bales of used clothes as Christmas presents to be distributed among the kids, but we did not have the money to bring Christmas smiles on the faces of the children. We hope we will be able to do this for the kids next year.

At this junction, we would like to say Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to all those who are directly and indirectly connected to the school. As we end 2013 and start the New Year, it is our prayer and hope that the New Year will be more fulfilling for all of us.
