Reflections on the Past School Year.

Adoration Christian Centre and School

Well, we are very blessed to have wrapped up another school year! We just arrived back to our home in Haiti from vacation, and are gearing up to start a new school year! As we gear up, we are reflecting on the past year, of all the amazing things the Lord has done for us, the school and Centre. And we realize that we have done a very poor job of sharing the things that are happening here at Adoration. To try to remedy this, we are going to post some of the highlights from the past year as we celebrate with our staff, students and their families the opportunities that we have had. In doing this, we also want to send a ginormous thank-you to all the supporters of Adoration. Because of your generous support more than 350 at-risk children and youth were able to have the opportunity to go to school this past year, receiving an essential 2 meals a day. We ask and pray that you will continue to partner with us as we seek to provide a solid Christ-centred education for the children and youth in this community.

Special Education:

Adoration was able to have 4 levels of Special Needs this year with a total of 31 students.  Here are some photos from this past year.DSC_0453 DSC_0452 DSC_0450 DSC_0449 ACS-Kate-183Adoration_Christian_Centre_611 Adoration_Christian_Centre_610 Adoration_Christian_Centre_598 Adoration_Christian_Centre_596 DSC_0456

Secondary.

We started the year out having 4 classes under the tent.  In January we were able to rent a portion of land next to Adoration, which was a shop for a construction company. With the help of parent and student volunteers, a work team, some hired hands, and another class from a local christian high school, we were able to transform the hangar into a secondary school, with a soccer field and a playground.  It has been a real blessing having this for the students.

A Community project:

Besides having a great local staff, we had so many people help out this past year to make all our programs a success.  We have had many parents come in and volunteer their time getting the school ready, covering books with plastic, help distribute food at each meal time, help with the cleaning and fixing up of the property.  Many of the students helped out too, fixing tables and benches, cleaning the bottom property, cleaning every day at the school and painting.

Community Education:

This past year Adoration was able to provide various educational opportunities for the community to help equip and strengthen them.  We have some very talented staff who worked hard to provide different seminars and courses for the community.  Here are some pictures of some of the opportunities.
