Excitement at CAMHS

 

Once again it was an interesting sporting event at the Carolyn A. Miller High School this activity was organized by the sport director Mr. Sylvester Walatee as part of school year Calendar. This was one of interesting event that kids really enjoyed. There were nine classes participating this activity which included 4th and up to 12th every classes drew their and the games was really interesting in the elementary section could win a match. Sylvester said that he has prepared the team but not limiting to a particular but almost all of the section of the school is capable playing any outside team and win. The grade 4th girls were determine to win the girls games trophy and they came so closed by winning grade 8th but they were little defeated by grade 9th girls. Baseball is a special sport created in Liberia called but not the American type of baseball. The Liberia baseball one has to kick the ball and run on the base almost like the American one.  There was only one trophy for each sex and only the best team could win each of these trophies.  Due to the important Sylvester attached to this activity, the whole community was there to watch the kids of Carolyn A. Miller High School.  The girls 5th girls also defeated the 11th grade girls. But the trophy was won by grade 7th girls after they defeated grade 11th.  Grade 9th and 11th met in the final of the soccer match, and grade 9th   was defeated by grade 11th. So, our champ for the year is 11th grade in soccer. All the games ended successfully and there was no report of any student getting hurt peaceful and the students really enjoyed.  With all the activities going on the school is still a great need of support and we want say thank you very much for the support you have given over the years and still need your support with you we cannot have a successful school for the kids.

Indeed it was a painful death that those kids when through in Connecticut. Those that were killed could have been the next world leaders, inventors, medical doctors and scientists but the evil one did not allow them to grow and achieve their potentials. We as Liberian understand and know how painful it is to kill someone with gun especially kids. We went through it for 14 years so we know the pain and grieve. Been that we have had strong tie with the state of Connecticut, we the Carolyn A. Miller School family identified with the people of Connecticut and the people of America. Twenty (20) school kids were chosen from the Carolyn A. Miller School in Monrovia to mention the names and lay a flower to of the kids that were killed in NewTown Connecticut USA. And after that each child shook the hand of the US ambassador. The students and teachers of the Carolyn A.

Condolence speech

We are grieving with the people of The United States of America especially those in Newtown

This is because of our specially relationship with the people of Newtown, Connecticut Karen King, Rotary Club of Newtown and Unit For Sight.

The people of Newtown are now family to us in Liberia through the Carolyn A. Millar & New Sight Eye Center.

This relationship goes back as far as 2007 when we were in exile Accra, Ghana. Individuals in New Town have been very supportive to Liberians. They have been the back bone to all our establishments both during the time of exile and in Liberia. To name few:

  1. Pen pal programs between the Reed intermediate and Carolyn A. Miller School
  2. Supplies of school materials
  3. Transportation of school and teachers belonging from Accra to Monrovia
  4. School and Eye clinic establishment in Liberia
  5. Restoration of sight in Liberia and many others

In View of this strong tide between the two communities, we believe it will be convenient to symbolically express our deepest regret and sympathy in this manner to let our brothers and sisters in Connecticut and the United States of America to know that we share their sorrow. We also like to join our President Mama Ellen Johnson Sirleaf in expressing condolences to the Government and people of the United States of America. We strongly condemned such horrible act and join the many calls to tighten the measures on arm control to prevent recurrence. Indeed, out children are the future generation and such an untimely dead will put fear in teachers and students.

Please accept our condolences!!!.

We want to appreciate the globalgiving family and all donors for their continuous support and we want to say that without you we can never continue this project.  There is a great need toward the school having now own building. We received some money from one of our special donor and we working to have this project get stated. You can donate to build a class room that you name can printed on as your contribution.  Thank you so much for your support and ask that you please continue this work  and relationship you have built over the year.
