They say a picture is worth a thousand words, right? Well, here are 37 photos from summer school at Hope International School (HIS)! From the looks of it, they had a good time.
HIS has a two-fold vision they strive for: Teach English and share the Gospel.
English Attracts Students From All Backgrounds
Teaching English as a part of a solid and well-rounded curriculum helps attract families from all backgrounds to the school. Lydia, the school’s founder said that often they have children from non-Christian homes enrolling in HIS because their parents want more than anything for their kids to learn English at a young age—even if that means they have to go to a Christian school to learn it.
Sharing the Gospel is the Ultimate Goal
Sharing the gospel is, of course, the ultimate goal, though. During summer school (which happens from March through June in Myanmar), the kids attend chapel every morning where they hear the Gospel, sing songs, and also memorize verses from the Bible.
The Bible is woven through every facet of education at the school because the teachers’ desire is that students learn from a biblical worldview.
