Starting 2009 with clean teeth

At Holy Cross Anglican School thy clearly recognize a link between education and good dental hygiene. Let's face it if your moth is not in a good state that can clearly affect your mood and your ability to concentrate - I am sure anyone who has ever had tooth trouble would agree.

Once again Holy Cross school kids  were thankful for the visiting Dentists Jan. 19th to the 23rd to help them start the new year with good dental health.

2/3 of the playground arrives

We  had great response from those passing by and seeing what was being unloaded, Tony and Kate stopped and made the generous offer to send some of their people to help unload after lunch, they are great neighbors. 

Fantastic team work in orchestrating this whole thing, starting with Sandy, Ed and everyone in the states to Reef Village volunteering to donate the delivery charges for delivering the playground equipment and all the other supplies. It was a wonderful show of support to the school and community of San Pedro.

For some items we received more than a 2 year supply. The photo's below of the computer room show the paper supplies we received and the medical supplies which we will be sharing with Dr Daniel, Dr Lerida, Saga as well as other schools. 

We were also blessed with some foam pads for the play ground which we loaned to the BDF and Coast Guard for temp. mattresses for the forces on the island until we need them for the playground which looks like will be a few months away. Holy Cross Anglican School also donated a stove, 6 toilets and a microwave oven to the BDF and Coast Guard  barracks to help their stay on the island be more pleasant.

As always we are a Holistic school looking first at the needs of our children then the needs of their parents and then the needs of the community. We are proud of being a member of the community of San Pedro, and proud to help others in need  in this community.

As my wife Francis always says " The beach of San Pedro was built by God one grain of sand at a time and each grain is as important as the other no matter how large or how small."
We are happy to place a few grains of sand on this beach for Him.
