Independence at last!

A note from Father Michael Barton as South Sudan celebrates its independence day:

Today we had an attempt to celebrate the South Sudan's independence on a school level and invited all the five neighboring schools to come and celebrate here by having the class one compete in marching, then the class two's did the same and the class three did the national anthem new to all of us. The class four had a soccer competition
and the six's did a dancing competition, whereas the seven did a poem competition (very poor) and the eights joined in more of the same but in song and there were no fights but lots of joy and expectation about tomorrow.
