Good bye Sarah and a Visit from Berend

Report
Sarah (from Finland) finished her term with our school, we want to thank her for her work here and we wish her well.
On Saturday, the students were so very happy to be the hosts of Mr. Berend and his two other visitors from Holland, Mr. Jan Noordam and Mrs. Jacquueline Westerlake. The students welcomed them joyfully with songs and lots of entertainment. Mr. Fredrick, the principal was very happy to host them too and gave them a very interesting speech of gratitude for fixing it in their time table to visit us.
The visitors took a tour around the school compound and took pictures. They addressed the students who listened to them fascinated.
They also brought some clothes for the cook who was really appreciative of the gifts from them.
As the term draws to an end, the students are preparing for the final exams of the year that will help them take note of how much they have achieved this year.
We wish them the best in their exams!!
Thank You
Olive

Hero’s day

HAPPY MASHUJA DAY!! (HEROS DAY)
Our country, Kenya celebrated hero’s day on the 20th day of Oct that is last Sunday and is thus came to Monday. However, our lovely school was not really in a celebrating mood as one of our teachers, Mr. Brian Alemba, lost his step mother. The students showed their love and support their love for this teacher by weeping with him and gave their contribution for the condolence as he went home. Beloved teacher, we hope that you will find comfort.
Brother John surprised his beloved students by calling and talking to very many of them over the phone. They were so happy and could not hide their joy as they talked endlessly and viewed the pictures of the happy director that he had sent over the mail to the principal.
He expressed his love to them and they were happy too.
Thank you

Web master’s note: We’re thinking Br John Kennedy is certainly a hero.

Br John Kennedy is in Puerto Rico working hard and attending many meetings. He is collaborating with Justo Mendez and staff to formulate a plan where the St Charles Lwanga School can work in partnership with the Nuestra Escuela school.

More Visitors

REPORT by Olive and Sarah
Last week on Wednesday it hadn’t been long since the last visitors left, and we already got new ones from the UK. The children are always very excited when people come visit us. They all were in a medical field and they came here to tell about themselves. The kids also presented some songs to our visitors. This time they just dropped in to meet us, but the next time they will also do medical check-ups and bring some medical supplies, which is why they are now travelling in Africa.
Brother John left on Wednesday evening to travel in the USA and Costa Rica for 2,5 weeks. He’s visiting our sister school Nuestra Escuela in Puerto Rico.
On Friday the prefects decided to plant trees along the fence of the school. What fascinated this event was the fact that they contributed to buy the trees with their own pocket money.
This week we started Monday with some visitors too. Three other volunteers, who are friends of Sara, Sarah and Vincent, came to visit us for the day. Merlyn, Nawal and Hanifa are all also from Germany and staying in Kenya for one year.
The hair salon John and Mark helped us build has been taken into good use. The students have already been cutting and straightening their hair in there.
The students also decided to renovate the boys’ bathroom. They practically brought it down then put it up again. It does look better now!!
The new library is indeed a blessing to the students who spend almost all their free time enjoying the cool building studying. The building which is cool and quiet compared to the rest of the iron sheets building, is full most of the time busy with the students. However, the furniture in the library is not enough to cater to all the students at the same time so the students study in shifts which can be trouble some but they share lovingly.
Yours faithfully

Olive and Sarah
