Father Ray Day Care Center

When the school year came to an end in late March the older children at the Day Care Center said their farewells as they would be entering the local government school kindergardens when the new school year opened.

But this weekend they returned for a graduation ceremony, and all of them wearing the uniforms of their new schools. They all looked very smart, and they received their certificates from Father Peter. They also received an envelope containing cash, and this was a refund of the fees they had paid everyday. It is not a lot, but enough to cover the costs of buying the new school uniforms.

After two months away from us a few of the children took a few seconds to recognise us, but within six months they won’t even remember the time they spent at the Day Care Center, or any of the teachers. But we wish them the best of luck.
