The Daylight School Watchman Paul Longarkit has been a faithful member of the Daylight staff for many years. Paul is in charge of keeping all the children and staff safe throughout the week.
Paul is there in the morning to greet the staff and students when they arrive to school. He will check in parents when they come to visit their children throughout the day.
Paul lets in the delivery teams when they come to drop off food, lumber, and building materials.
But due to the COVID pandemic, Paul has an added responsibility. He will be taking the temperatures and encouraging mask wearing for the students, staff, and guests entering Daylight School.
Due to COVID, many of our students will remain on campus during the August school break. The 8th graders will continue to study for their national exams, and the rest of the students will enjoy clubs like choir, debate, futbol, farming, and sewing.
So Paul will be taking the temperatures and encouraging the masking of students like Joshua Kimpur who are living at Daylight.
Community Leaders and Daylight Board members like Dan Chumba who stop by for meetings.
Daylight Matron Angelina Kimpur gets her temperature taken when she comes back from shopping.
Thanks to our many supporters we were able to provide masks, thermometers, and ensure safety standards at Daylight.
We are doing this to protect our students in the COVID pandemic. Students like 8th grader Sharlene who is living on campus as she studies for her 8th grade national exam.
Sharlene’s family lives many miles into the desert in a small village. So as she studies, she lives in the Daylight Dormitories. Sharlene is working hard to make her Mom, Dad, and two brother’s proud. “I love my parents with all my heart, soul, and my mind.” she says.
Her favorite classes are English and Social Studies. Sharlene also loves participating in the Daylight Debate Team after school.
When Sharlene grows up she wants to be a lawyer. “I love defending others when they are in trouble, I don’t like anyone to suffer. This is why I would like to be a Lawyer.”
Thank you for helping keep our students and staff safe during COVID. And thank you for helping make Sharlene’s dream of being a lawyer come true!
