On that day, both old and new students, as well as old and new staffers, met at the school to begin the new school year. Everyone was excited to have been part of the new day of school after a two-month vacation.

At this juncture, we would like to give you what we would call “the progressive good news” of the week. When we opened on Monday, 68 students came. On Tuesday, there were 95 students. By Friday, the kids had become 107. The number may further increase by next week.

HLF Community School Gets Facelift

Help Liberia Foundation Community School, our school in Buchanan, has received a facelift, as we anticipate the opening of the new school year.

The exterior of the school building has been painted blue, instead of its usual white color, and the windows and the base of the building have been painted cherry red, while the interior maintains its white color. New school year; new look.

As we plan to begin the 2018/2019 school year, one of the worrisome situations is the constant rain, which may affect students’ and, in some places, teachers’ attendance at the beginning of the academic year.

Our thanks to all those who continue to help us to maintain the school which is serving underprivileged children in Buchanan.

The students of the school in Sweden are 23 kids between the ages of 10 and 15 years, and they are all members of the same class. Their teacher is Anna. The have already written the first batch of letters, which was brought to Liberia by Lena last month. Similarly, our kids wrote their replies and they have been delivered to the Swedish kids.
Our kids are excited over the arrangement and look forward to similar arrangements with students of schools in other countries around the world, as they are anxious to interact with kids of different orientations and cultures in our world that has become more of a global village.
If you are a teacher or school principal and you desire for our kids and your kids to establish a pen-pal relationship, please contact us.
