In March, HMS collected 300 tee shirts to send to our sister school, St. Bahkita School, in the Kiryandongo Refugee Settlement, in Bweyale, Uganda.
Charlie Roscoe, a former Yarmouth resident who runs the non-profit called Schools for Refugees brought the tee shirts to the school on his recent trip to Uganda.
HMS students and St. Bahkita students have also exchanged 300 letters to share information about their daily lives. Our community has been involved with St. Bahkita for several years; this has been an important and enriching experience for our students!
Our continuing thanks to Paula Vicenzi for bringing this wonderful opportunity to HMS.
