The 2nd quarter publication is here! Dear Reader this publication is filled with excitement, hard work, sacrifice and interesting picturesque views. Our publication this time will serve as an illustration of our work and effort to give reliable and accurate feedback on the ongoing developments at our institution. The St Rupert Mayer Mission High School Newsletter will in this issue give you dear reader an overview of the whole mission. The institutions which include the Hospital, the Primary School, the Parish, the community and of course the High School are captured in this issue, however more attention will be directed to the High School, its students and teaching staff. The last moments before school break, the transition we had during Lentern season that eventually got us into Easter, during the Holiday. The refreshing visit from our dear friends from Germany, how it opened a new horizon of possibilities, appreciation of cultural differences and the common humanity we share though we are all fortunate to live in different sides of the earth sphere. The generous donation of computers to the Media Centre cum Press Club from the Jesuit Delegate of Education in Africa and Madagascar Fr Joe Arimoso SJ, we are eternally grateful!
The humbling experience of our office being visited by the Jesuit Delegate of formation Fr Emmanuel Nshimbi SJ, his reflections on the power of media as it gave him reminiscences of his early years of vocation. This publication is also full of anticipation, the 2nd term is here and it is as usual the most exciting term, for those who love soccer like me, this is the time when the inter house competitions will be a joy to be a part of, keeping to tradition we hope to emerge victorious in the inter schools competitions, for examination classes this is the time when you make or break your academic future…
