Back in the day, I used to be the Journalism Club tutor at
. Twice a week I
would sit down with the kids and plan out potential news stories to cover, edit
the kids’ written results, type it all up in a fancy Word Publisher document,
and then have my pupils present their “Voice of The Voiceless” newsletter at
the school assembly. Well, the tradition continues! I have included here a few
excerpts from this week’s ever enlightening “Voice of The Voiceless.” Tirrim
Note: The following article describes the students’ viewpoint on the heightened discipline brought about this week by the Teacher On Duty, Mr. John. Mr. John always takes his job very seriously, and when it is his turn to “be on duty,” (regulate school functions for the week) the students are inevitably more committed to their studies and far more punctual. For the pupils, school is no longer just a place to get good meals (hence the “feeding camp” comment), but a place to really get involved in a disciplined academic culture.
School Insider: Real Moments in
Written by: Reporter Thomas Idi
Wow! “Wonders will never cease to happen!” is a common saying among all
students and teachers who are generalizing what has happened during the
remarkable week of the 26th-30th of May. It has been a unique and active moment
in Tirrim High. “Army training in the camp” gives a picture of what I mean
exactly. The week was a super display of what school should look like. The
rumor, “School is a feeding camp,” should be erased and completely buried if
coming T.O.D.s (Teachers On Duty) will be acting likewise. Time consciousness
was the big activity that teachers demanded students to observe. Early in the
dawn the classes were as silent as a cemetery with a uniformed and busy army.
Therefore, time management should be observed in school and coming weeks should
be like this particular week.

Making Your Day A Little Brighter
When things go wrong, when the road you are treading seems all uphill, when friends disappear and enemies increase, when you are alone and all seems hopeless, or when friends discourage you, keep your heart pure and devoted to Jesus Christ and He promises always to be with you.
Words to live by: “Come to me all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you REST.” Matthew 11:28
