Ghana Schools Project

Ghana newsSt Clement’s Junior High School, have recently contacted St. Mary’s on the progress of building work in Ghana. Staff expressed their gratitude for the wonderful and ongoing assistance with funding and expertise and shared 3 major improvements to the school with us: 

Metal gates were erected to secure the office and entrance to the nursery block. This counters theft and other antisocial activities. A classroom has now been wired to enable ICT lessons once computers are installed and new blackboards have replaced old, dilapidated ones.

David Ayaribire, Head Teacher said: "This is just to express our profound gratitude for the wonderful assistance showed to us. Once again we are most grateful to you as we continue to pray for God's blessings."

The Holy Child School on the Cape Coast, now in its second year, has about 20 pupils aged up to 6 years. They have 4 small rooms: 2 classrooms, a book room and and a rest room with beds for the afternoon. The walls are well covered with educational posters and outside is a large courtyard where the children play and learn the alphabet painted on the walls.

One of the Holy Child sisters, Monica is head teacher and 2 other female staff are employed. Monica said "The long term plan is to have a school which goes right through to secondary level." And hopefully building work will start in the near future.

Year 13 Performance

Totally Over You
On the 3rd April students, parents, governors and staff gathered in the College theatre to watch the final performance from the Year 13 Performing arts students. The 8 students staged a full length play, “Totally over you”, by Mark Ravenhill. This very topical play deals with the modern day obsession with being a celebrity and the production included some very funny moments, a couple of interesting dance routines and a special guest performance from Paul Williams in Year 12. The students should be very proud of the end result which is testimony to the hard work and professionalism within the group. Well done!

Miss Lloyd.
