EDUCATION


            Light to the souls and to the minds.  The little ones have to study to become men.  Holy Family has made a strenuous effort in the field of education.  The world belongs to those who dare.  We must tackle what must be done; we must take a risk, leaving aside what may appear cautious prudence. We have to put our trust in God.  Our school, though not yet finished, looks a fine building.  There is still a long way to
go, but we shall march on.
          Our young people are eager to learn.  Practically all the tiny tots start schooling.  If they can, carry on till the S. S. C.  Many, however, get tired, cannot continue and drop their classes.

COLLEGE STUDENTS

An additional salary is always welcome.

Few, very few among our youth can avail themselves of a College education.
We have only 8 boys & 2 girls attending college.
