It is officially Christmas time in Beit Jala and the decorations and celebrations are in full swing. The students cannot wait to go on Christmas break but before they do they have to finish their mid term exams. The exams started on the 5th of December and will run until the 22 of December. So far the students have been working very hard studying every day and it has shown in the results.
In addition to the start of exams, the start of the winter has also come into full swing. The rain has come and the wind is howling off of the hillside here at Hope School and although it is very cold we are managing to stick by our heaters and wood stoves. We are so thankful for all of those that have given money to help us buy heating fuel for the winter, they will never know how much we truly appreciate it.
The staff and volunteers from Hope School wish you a Merry Christmas, a Happy Hanukah, and wonderful New Years.
