School's Back in Session!

This past Monday marked the first day of the 2017-2018 school year at Louverture Cleary School!

Among those excited for the start of the new year is LCS Principal Marjorie Mombrun (LCS '07):

It is very exciting for all of us in the administration to have the students back. Celebrating a 100% pass rate on both required state exams, the Philo Baccalaureate and the Katryem state exam, we are very happy to start the school year off strong!

Philo (US 12th grade +1) student Billy Saint Croix leads the school in prayer, Haiti's national anthem and the school song during the first morning meeting of the year on September 11, 2017.

A large part of LCS' success each year is the consistency with which it operates. THP President Deacon Patrick Moynihan reflects:

I am pleased that Irma saw fit to leave Haiti alone, even as great damage was done to her sister islands. School opening on time in Haiti each and every year is part of a process toward the institutional strength Haiti needs to be the great nation it strives to become.

 

Members of the administration and staff gather to welcome the students back to LCS for another year, including Dean of Students Obed Gilles (LCS '09, far left) and LCS Principal Marjorie Mombrun (LCS '07, second from right), joined by THP In-Country Program Manager & Liaison to Partner Foundations Connor Branham (Volunteer '14-'15, far right).

Thanks for celebrating the start of the new year with us. We look forward to a great year!
