HLF Students Participate in Chapel Program

On the first Friday of October, HLF students participated in another chapel program at the school and, as usual, it was a great arrangement.

The chapel program is held twice a month – the first Friday and the last Friday. The sole purpose of the chapel program is to help the kids learn or practice how to play assigned roles during actual programs organized by the school. It gives the kids the opportunity to practice how to introduce programs, how to introduce guest speakers, how to sing, how to dramatize stories, how to recite Bible verses, how to say rhymes and poems and so forth.

The chapel program was special in that one of the new teachers named Mark D. Joe, who is a musician and who has been teaching the kids music since he entered the school last month, had the kids practice singing some of the new songs taught them.

Our kids always excitedly look forward to the chapel program, and we are happy that we have instructors who are willing to help our kids.

We are thankful to all of our friends and sponsors who helped us to have a successful school year, especially to those in Sweden and Great Britain. We also thank our parents who entrusted their children into our care.

As we plan to start a new school year next month, September, we appeal to our friends and sponsors in Sweden and Great Britain, as well as other places, to help us give education to some of the disadvantaged kids in Buchanan. We are able to do what we are doing for the kids because of your assistance.

District Education Officer Meets Parents

The Ministry of Education’s District Education Officer (DEO) assigned to Buchanan, Grand Bassa County, had a special year-end meeting with the parents of our school.

During the meeting, the DEO, Mr. Amos Telio, encouraged the parents to be more involved with the running and improvement of the school, saying: “A school with a strong Parent-Teacher Association is bound to be a good school.”

The meeting was more of an interactive forum where parents were given the opportunity to ask questions, indicate problems affecting them, and suggest ways to improve the school. It was a meeting that benefited both parents and teachers.

At the end of the meeting, Mr. Telio promised that he will have another meeting with the parents in the second week of September, that is, the first month of the new school year.

We are grateful to the DEO for his time, his encouragement and advice to the attendees, as well as for his desire to see the school improve.
