A Bird’s Eye View of Our Campus 2016

This aerial photo shows all the buildings on our campus, with the exception of the 17 teachers houses. The new library (with the bright blue roof) is outstanding. At the top of the photo are the two recently built technical buildings, the carpentry/metal workshops on the right and the tailoring workshop on the left. At the bottom left a portion of the big area is for personal garden plots for the agriculture students. It is break time and the students are scattered all over the campus.

New Mural At St. Francis Secondary School

New Mural at St. Francis Secondary School The new school year has begun at St. Francis with new and returning students coming this past Monday to begin their classes. In the assembly hall, they walked in for the opening assembly and found a new mural on the wall. Below are pictures of the mural – the last photo is of the entire mural, which is about 2 meters by 12 meters, and the rest are close-ups on details of the mural. The mural tells a story. Broadly speaking, the first panel is the students hearing the Word of God, preached by St. Francis, and the second panel is of the students responding to the Word in their life through their studies and by good works in the community (here, by helping a widow). But there is much more in each panel! In the first panel, St. Francis is preaching to […]

Field Trip for 8th Grade Agriculture Class

Field Trip for 8th Grade Agriculture Class Students listening to Mary explain the sawdust cooker Just last week, one of the 8th grade agriculture classes took a field trip to St. Francis Friary to observe and learn about sawdust cookers and the caretaking of pigs. About 30 students gathered around as Mary, Ruth and Br. Tony showed students how the sawdust cooker works. The students took notes as the two pipes were placed in the can and sawdust was packed tightly to ensure a long cook time. Finally, after several scoops of sawdust were added and packed, a circular grill was added and students were able to see the cooker in action: a flame was lit at the bottom of the can and a pot of beans was put over the fire. Students learned about the advantages of sawdust cookers as well; once one buys the cooker itself, the fuel […]
