Happy Independence Day!

As you know, Westtown School does their annual senior project at the Heritage Academy. The Westtown Senior Project Crew arrived on Monday and has spent the last few days in Ghana. In addition, Eva Tsocanos and Julia Keehn arrived in Ghana yesterday to teach at the Heritage Academy for six weeks. They are there together with Bronwyn and the Liontree family who are staying for the year. We are excited to have everyone together to be working for the common good at Heritage.

On Tuesday, we watched the Heritage middle school boys play in the semi-final match of the inter-schools soccer tournament. After a long and amazing game, they sadly lost 0-1 and were knocked out of the tournament. The good news is that both the boys and girls teams won in the title in the volleyball tournament on Monday!

Today, March 6th, is Ghana’s independence day. We slept in and spent the afternoon in Mankessim Market which is always a time filled with sight-seeing and fun chaos.

Tomorrow is the first day of school! Eva, Julia and Bronwyn went to a soccer game in Mando while the Westtown group was in Mankessim. The came over to hang out for while after dinner and then went to a party in Ajumako while the Westtown group gathered for evening check-in and early bed time in preparation for their big day tomorrow. Eva & Julia are helping with reading and will start teaching on Monday. Bronwyn is working in the business office and school clinic.

We’ll be posting here and on Facebook so you can follow us on facebook by clicking here!

Your friends,

The Westtown Senior Project Crew
