We send you greetings for Kabala Koinadugu District,

Northern Sierra Leone.

It has been a very busy week for all the teachers out here at Nazareth House Apostolate School.

The final exams for the school year 2009/2010 ended one week ago, and since then we have been working on the reports cards filling in the grades for the children on their various grade levels.

School will close down next Friday the 9th of July, marking the end of this school year.

At present, the children are busy practicing their cultural songs, plays and dances as the school will be having a PARTY and CULTURAL PERFORMANCES for the children on Thursday the 8th July.

This is how schools in and around Kabala celebrate or mark the end of the school year for their children.

A fun time at school, a day of year-end closure of another school year. We believe this is good for the children.

It will keep us in good spirits as we go for holidays.

As a school, we want to thank God first for His love, Care, Provision, Protection all throughout this school.

We also want to thank Mama Vicki and Father Seraphim for their tireless work, help, supports and prayers all through this school year.

They have been of great helps to us as a school and have been there for us when ever we need them.

And to you all our dear friends and supporters we want to thank you all for helping us out all this years.

Your support to us as a school, in any form or kind has been a great blessing to us.

We thank you all for your support and help To NHA School Kabala.

We love you all, and may the Good God continue to Bless Us All.
