Dear friends and supporters,

It excites us to bring you an update on what your support has helped us do over the past months.  Thanks to your kind assistance, we were involved in a lot of activities, including the National youth day, tree planting exercise, bilingualism week and an excursion of the kids to the Yaoundé Airport.

The BLIS family joined other youths nationwide to celebrate the 47th edition of the National Youth Day on Saturday the 11th February 2013 under the theme: “Youth, Civic Responsibility and Participation in the Development Process”. In the Republic of Cameroon the 11th February is a public holiday reserved for the youths to express their concern in any domain of national life. This usually takes the form of a March pass, dancing and singing competition among schools. It was BLIS’ 4th official outing during the 11th February Youth Day Celebration.

Bilingualism day this year was celebrated on the 1st of February 2013 under the theme “Bilingualism, a cornerstone for Professionalisation for an emerging Cameroon”.  The Headmaster, Mr Akuri Lucien and some teachers (Mme TasiIrine, Mr Chi Eric and Mr Nkok Mathias) organized a successful Bilingualism week at school with all the pupils of Bilingualism Club.  To spice up the day, there was a youth day song presented by our counter parts from Noula Nursery and Primary School Awae. We thank Mme Leonie and her Colleague Mme Comfort who seized the opportunity to celebrate this Bilingualism week with us at Bitame Lucia.
 
On the 8th of February 2013, as part of the youth week activities, the class 4, 5 and 6 pupils visited the Nsimalen International Airport. During the 90 minutes guided tour the kids discovered how huge aircrafts are. The children learned how the airport staff supports passengers from the beginning to the end of their journey. These stages were explained with respect to both local and international trips. The students were able to ask many questions during the visit and toured different areas of the airport. They watched how a Camair-co plane from Douala landed and how it took off from the airport. They pupils had the opportunity to meet and discuss with Capt. Felix Ongwa of Camair-Co, who answered several questions asked by the pupils.  It was a very educative experience for the kids and they chatted about all the exciting things they had seen and heard.

Your support helped to provide the backbone for these activities covering related costs. Thank you so much for helping to provide a well-rounded educational experience for the children.  Without your support all this would not have been possible and we are so very grateful for your kind assistance.
