There was plenty of fun, excitement and culture at as visitors arrived to celebrate our first ever Form 6 graduation.

Our first ever Form 6 graduation is almost here.

With three days to go until the May 30 celebrations, visitors began festivities by soaking up the culture and fun at our Smith (secondary school) Campus.

The day began with students treating our visitors, who have traveled from all over the world to join us, to an entertaining drumming and dance performance before joining them for a relaxing lunch.

The fun ramped up in the afternoon at a sports session that included Form 6 students and their longtime sponsors playfully pelting each other with wet sponges, competing in an egg-and-spoon race, then a fun game of volleyball.

The day ended with a warm welcome dinner at our Sisia (primary school) Campus and yet another entertaining display from our talented primary school students.

To make sure parcels arrive and incur no expenses for the school

  • Please do NOT register or insure any mail as it costs the school at least USD $25 in taxes at our end.
  • Mark all parcels as being “second-hand goods” or “personal gifts”.
  • Ensure the description of goods written on the parcel matches the actual items inside as customs and postal staff frequently inspect contents of parcels.
  • Please label all parcels clearly with the first and last name of the recipient and your full name.
  • Please put the value of the package at no more than US$10 (the lower the better).
  • Ensure that your parcel is LESS THAN 2KG. We have been advised that parcels less than 2KG are technically tax-free regardless of content, but this is not guaranteed by all postal workers.
 

Tax-free items include books, personal goods and anything that is not new. Used goods, used clothes, etc…(please remove labels and packaging from all items before sending them)

Keep in mind that parcels sent by airmail can take up to four months to get here (sea mail is even longer – often 12+ months!), so don’t worry if it takes a while for us to let you know the parcel has arrived.
