Holy Cross Anglican School was a buzz to day. Parents, Kids, Members of the Diocese, Staff, Volunteers, all enjoyed the Dedication and Blessing of the new computer lab - and rightfully so, it is not every day that they are having Dedication to give thanks to the generous Donation of 40 new Dell computers and all the help that went into making it happen, from each nail hammered to every meal cooked to feed the hungry workers.
I can tell you the feeling to go along with the pictures of people walking through the computer room was one of awe. From the Mayoress Elsa Paz saying how wonderful it was to a Belizean woman happy that there are going to be adult classes available at night and we both talked about how much this will mean to the kids all throughout their life to be computer smart for anything they choose to do in the future. The teachers will also have a huge benefit to their studies and since there are 40 computers, it will being many together with the energy of higher learning at one time.
Dear Friends, We survived the first week of school - yea!! The days proceeding September 1st were wild and crazy as we worked 'round the clock to have everything ready. Thanks be to God and with your prayers almost 500 children found a safe haven and a place of learning ready and waiting...two new classrooms, computer lab(!!), school supplies, seventeen teachers, Feeding Program, nurse/councilor, textbooks, uniforms, soccer balls, library books, toilet paper, purified water and much, much more!!! Many thanks on behalf of those who are still too young to thank you themselves - smile!
Wish you could all be here with us this Friday at 10am for the official Dedication, Blessing and Opening of our new Computer Lab...Bishop Philip Wright will say the prayers and our guests will represent the local, national and international (that's you!) communities. Many, many thanks to all those who made this dream a reality!!!!!!!
Please enjoy a few photos of our first day of school on Monday, September 1st. The first children (picture one) arrived at 7:05am!!! Also, please check out the following blog spot from Michele who recently came on a tour of the school. She is from Playa Del Carmen and the post below has pics and a write up of her visit.
