Holy Cross Volunteer Coordinator
The pride in the air was almost palpable as staff, parents, friends, brothers and sisters watched the young graduates assemble. And they looked beautiful too - the girls in gorgeious dresses and boys in black pants and bow tie, all covered in a magnificent graduation gown and cap.
The ceremony, planned by the infant school staff, was wonderful. The children were well prepared and looked so confient - hard to belive they were the same children who joined us a year ago. They sang a song about how much they looked forward to going to primary school and accepted their diplomas proudly. After the ceremony, parents and children enjoyed a celebratory meal.
Pictures say so much more than words, so look forward to plenty more below.
But first I want to thank all those who have made this first year of preschool possible - the Anglican Diocese, the teachers, the parents and all the volunteers who donated their time, toys, books and money to make this happen. We belive that this preschool will have a huge impact on the community and the academic future of these children. PLEASE help us to keep the preschool thriving by supporting Holy Cross Anglican school - donate by sending a check to PO Box 59, San Pedro, Ambergris Caye, Belize on online/check via the 501c3 registered Holy Cross Education Foundation. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org to find out about donating supplies or volunteering.
