  • How do we feel when we see the drawing?

    Do we look at it? What does it make us want to do? Do we feel close to these children? Both of them? Or do we give one of them priority? What can we tell them?

"REMOTE" LEARNING IN UBU - NEWS 2

2014 will be remembered for holding the 15th anniversary of founding the Monseñor Salvador Schlaefer High School in North Ubu on 25 November 2014. A variety of activities were organised: a procession of floats through the main streets, with participants on horseback or on foot, featuring different aspects of Nicaraguan culture, ending up in a cultural contest and crowning the High School Queen!

We were sent this photo to show us the conditions the young people were working in, every fortnight.

In groups of 5 and in the same space, given that there is only one class. There is also a patio, a garage, etc. We would like to improve the facilities to be able to offer these young people the complete training in Christian values that we know they long for.

 

 


 

Father Fernando, who left the parish in December, played an important role as a spiritual educator, not only as a member of the High School Board but also with his advice on the High School's activities.

He asks us to trust his successor who he met when he was Director of the Senior Seminary.

 

 

We are aware that the different delegates and coordinators from the High School are supported by the administrative team and the Board on all financial matters, in the Parish Assembly which analyses the successes and any problems that have cropped up.

We also send out communications at important points such as meetings of public and private schools' head-teachers for Primary and Secondary Education in the North Ubu sector.

The teachers also meet on a regular basis and any decisions are recorded in a log book. We are all working to help the High School keep fulfilling its mission and improve how it works.

 

 

We also saw 26 new graduates in 2014.

"Nowadays, the majority are in further and technical education, ready to sow the seed that they received at the High School that, in the future, will allow them to reap the benefits for their local communities, their villages and their country", states Mauricio Bismark Vargas.

And this is how he concludes his missive: "We are grateful for all your support and we ask God to bless you in our prayers."

 

We wish you all the courage required to fulfil this wonderful mission and we would like to greet the new priest, welcoming him with open arms as one of us in this project.
