Celebrating and out with the old, in with the new

The New Horizon School is well underway in the new year.  Mid year Exams are done and the students have settled in for the second half of the school year.  Look here in the next couple of weeks for a 2014 recap.  We finished off the calendar year with a little festive spirit…

The New Horizon School’s Christmas party, held on December 21, was an exciting time for our students. As before, even though we tried to limit the number of attendees, we had a full house. It was great to see the students dressed up in their finest for the event. Immediately following the Christmas program put on by the students, a sumptuous dinner was served.

As far as our budget would allow, the entrance and assembly area were transformed into a Christmas wonderland.

The day before and the morning of the Christmas party, the staff was busy putting together Christmas bundles for the students. Thanks to our supporters, we had an array of gifts to bundle. There were backpacks, clothes, footwear, dolls, candies and personal hygiene products. These were arranged in various combinations, leaving no one out. As you can imagine, it was very difficult to keep our workshop a secret. This surprise only helped to heighten the excitement at the party, making this event the biggest hit of the evening.
