JS Missions - Uganda update
Uganda closed all schools in mid-March due to the threat of COVID-19 and they have remained closed since that time. Under strict government guidelines schools may be opened in September with a maximum of ten students per class.
Principal Lawrence of Divine Junior School, is believing to reopen and also possibly purchase a plot of land opposite the school that is for sale. The plot is 30 square metres. These are big dreams for a small Christian school and we have the opportunity to be a part of it!
On 23 September, Junior School students have the opportunity to wear a superhero cape to school on top of their school uniform and bring a small donation.
You could even use a tea towel or a piece of material if you don’t have a cape at home. Giving envelopes and further information will be sent home with the students later this term.
Please consider as a family if you would like to contribute to help our sister school reopen and possibly expand their school!
The photo included with this article is of five teachers and Principal Lawrence each receiving a gift of $160 AUD that was raised last semester through Coins for Missions and Crazy Hat Day. Teachers in Uganda are not being paid and many schools have been sold. Let’s keep Divine Junior School alive and thriving!
