End of School Year and Summer 2001

June 28  End of School Year:  The scholastic year ended for the Primary School and Kindergarten, with drama and music performances, exhibitions of art work, and showing of a film made by the children.  Thirteen 6th grade children graduated this year, and will continue at schools outside the village.

July 8  Summer Camp opens.  The annual binational summer camp opened, under the direction of  Hezzi Schuster.  This year, about a hundred children are taking part - many more than last year.  They will participate in a variety of fun and educational activities.  This year, unlike earlier years, special funding was provided by friends, making it possible to add many interesting activities, while keeping parents' fees at a modest amount.
