Sponsor a teacher

Our family sponsors two teachers at St Jude’s, and it happened that both of them were mentioned in the latest school newsletter!

Mr Sebastian Gitbang

Mr Sebastian is the Head of the Social Studies Department but next year he will become the Academic Master at Usa River. In this role he will be in charge of all the heads of academic departments and teachers at that campus. Currently he is receiving wise counsel from Nestory Msoffe the Academic Master at Moshono in preparation for the new challenges he will take on next year.

Miss Genofeva and the Hoey family

Miss Genofeva teaches Kindergarten and Year 1. Here she is with some students and the Hoey family who also sponsor her. You can find out a bit more about her here on my blog.

When you sponsor a teacher at St Jude’s your donation helps to provide teaching resources. Teachers also know that someone on the other side of the world is interested in what they do. We are nourished by the interest of others. What are you interested in today? What are you nourishing with your interest?

I'm wondering if you can help me - you've mentioned the lastest newsletter on your blog but I can't find it on the website or the link to suscribe to the newsletter.

Could you please point me in the right direction? Thanks!

The newsletters are in the 'news' section - but not in a strict chronological order!

Here's the URL
http://www.schoolofstjude.co.tz/News/NewsletterJuly2007/tabid/306/Default.aspx

The front page gives the following instructions for subscribing to the newsletter --

"If you would like to receive our monthly newsletter, please register with our website by clicking the New Donor Registration link near the top of the page. If you do not wish to register, but you would still like to receive the newsletter, then please email us at schoolofstjude@habari.co.tz with the words "Subscribe to Newsletter" in the subject line."
