As you may be aware, we have not posted any new articles since December; however, a lot of things have been happening at Help Liberia Foundation Community School since the last article. And we are pleased to share a few of the happenings with you at this point.

1. We closed on December 20, 2013, for the Christmas and New Year’s holiday, and re-opened on January 6, giving students, staff and faculty the opportunity to interact for the first time in the New Year. In other words, January 6 was the day on which classes resumed after the holiday.

The chairman is Mr. Roosevelt Karyeah, the Vice Chairman is Mr. John Zoegar, and the Secretary is Philemena Aggrey, a teacher at our school.
