Every year, a new fabric (in 2 colors) is created for Women’s Day – March 8th. It is so fun to see many, many women wearing the special fabric and celebrating being a woman (and girl!).
First stop – Calafatas Bakery to pick out our snack.
Second Stop – playing on the playground at Mahima (behind the grocery store).
SWIMMING – As part of the December Joint Learning Session, our students participated in 10-days of swimming lessons at various commercial pools in Yaounde. It is a highlight for our students and they make great progress.
SINGING – Students also worked hard to learn the words to songs for our Christmas Program. Many students had speaking and solo parts as they honed their performance skills. It was an evening of recognizing the colors of Christmas that remind us of Jesus’ birth.

Every year, the make-up of our staff changes a bit. Some are in Cameroon long-term, some for a few years and some for just one year. For however long each person is here, we know that God brought them to work with us for just this time…for just this class and these students. God is faithful!
Meet the staff of the 2017-18 school year.
Needs for the 2018-19 school year:
- Kindergarten teacher
- Grade 3 & 4 teacher (combination class)
- Homeschool teacher/tutor – teach the children of missionaries living in the village
The 2017-18 school year began with almost 3 weeks of a Joint Learning Session. Home school students and The Greenhouse students learned together about Ancient Rome, writing research papers, science and reviewed their math. They learned to play basketball better and how to tie knots and how to use them! It was a full three weeks of learning and fun!
The new school year will start with almost three weeks of the Joint Learning Session, August 7-24. Friday, August 25 is a Teacher Transition Day – no school for the students! The Greenhouse will officially start on Monday, August 28.
On Thursday, January 28, we celebrated the 100th day of school at The Greenhouse. Each class had activities centered around 100. Students weighed, measured, counted, and guessed if there were more or less than 100.
