The progressing of the HaTikvah School in Shillong (Meghalaya, India)

During the second year of school existing in area close to city Shillong the number of students were increased up to 52 persons. This is the school and orphanage where Ps Raman Zayats is in charge. Due to the hardworking of the teachers, the change in the student have been noticed. All the students are well discipline, clean and tidy. The teachers, they even went to meet the mothers of the students and explained to them the important of education.

The school authority organized a parent day once a year. On this day the students were ask to show their parent what they have learn from school. The programs would start with the prayer from the Head of the School or any elderly man. Then the students would start with a welcome to their parents. Then follow by short dramas from the different classes. This will take about one and half hours then follow by tea break. Then they would like to display their talent in sport such as athletic, football, high jump, long jump etc. The show is over by about three o’clock in the afternoon.
