Our school had its ninth graduation program, which coincided with its formal closing of the 2013/2014 academic year, on Sunday, June 29.
The program brought together parents, staff, well-wishers and students, including the graduates. Seventeen students graduated from the kindergarten division, while only one person graduated from the elementary division.
The program was held at in the edifice of the New Life Jubilee Christian Fellowship Center, which is about one hundred yards from the school. Although there was a heavy down pour, parents, staff and students still made it to the program.
The keynote speaker at the program was Mr. Samuel Nimely, former Principal of Help Liberia Foundation Community School and pastor of the New Life Jubilee Christian Fellowship Center. Mr. Nimely spoke on the topic: “The Importance of Quality Primary Education.”
At the end of his speech, Mr. Nimely gave two scholarships to two of our students – the student with the highest yearly average and the student with the second highest yearly average.
During the program, the Director of the school, Mr. Paul Yeenie Harry, announced to the audience that the school will begin operating its junior high level (middle school) this year, that is, when the new school year starts in September. This requires that we construct an annex to accommodate the new class. We need the support of everyone in this direction. More information will be provided later.
As stated above, the new academic year will start in September; meanwhile, the registration and admission processes leading to the re-opening of school in September will begin on Monday, July 14.
It is also worth mentioning that most of the sponsored students have written letters to their sponsors. We will send these letters, along with some photos, to their sponsors.
We extend our sincere thanks to all those who helped us to have a successful school year, especially our international partners. We are all partners in progress, and we greatly appreciate this interaction.
