Opening of New Buildings at Aquinas School

This past spring our secondary school tried to introduce classes for Form 5 (we currently offer Forms 1 through 4), but so few students enrolled and of such marginal qualifications that the administration decided to shut down the program after only two weeks.

In the meantime we have some beautiful new classrooms, which are mostly going unused. But we also have a new library that Diane has moved into with the book collection. It's a very nice space that is getting a lot of good use, a pleasure to walk into.

Anyhow, even though we don't have any Form 5 students it was decided to go ahead with the official opening ceremony which had already been scheduled. Cardinal Pengo attended, so it turned out to be a pretty big deal. He is, I believe, the highest ranking Catholic in Tanzania. Photos below are of the ceremony. -Earl
