Help Liberia Foundation Community School located in Buchanan has closed for the 2015/2016 academic year for a two-month break that will end in August.
The closing program, which coincided with the kindergarten graduation exercise of the school, was held on Sunday, July 3, 2016. The Kindergarten Section had eight (8) kids. Six of them passed and two failed; however, only four (4) of them participated in the graduation ceremony because of financial reasons.
The exercise was held at the school for the first time ever, and it was characterized by recitations, dramas, singing, speeches and so forth. The guest speaker spoke on “The Importance of Obedience.”
Although the rainy season has been disturbing, parents, students, community residents, teachers and administrators attended the program.
At the end of the program, kids, staffers and parents ate together. The school cooked for everyone. There were two dishes – beans and rice and greens and rice.
The new school year will start the first week in September.
We wish to thank all of you, the school’s sponsors and friends, for all the help, both moral and financial, given the school and the kids this year. We are appreciative of the assistance. We wish to say a very special thank you to Lena Marner, Anders Marner and Mary Smith for continuously identifying with the school.
As we look forward to beginning a new school year in September, we appeal that you will help the kids in any way you can so that we can continue to provide education to these disadvantaged kids in Liberia.
