TANZANIA,The School of St. Jude

1 Dec

Thank you to the students from The School of St. Jude in Tanzania for this wonderful drawing and also to Tara Crowe for organising the project in this school. Great work by everyone.

The students’ wish for peace: We all wish for peace because in times of peace children have the opportunity to play, learn and develop as all children should.

In 2002 a young lady, Gemma Rice (now Gemma Sisia), from a sheep farm in Australia, opened a small school in Northern Tanzania with the help of her family, friends and local Rotary Club.

Gemma had inherited the passion and zeal  from her ancestor, Edmund Rice (founder of the Christian Brothers movement)

Tanzanian Flag Meaning:
The green stripe symbolises agriculture and the fertility of the land. The black represents the citizens of Tanzania. The blue stripe stands for the Indian Ocean which is on Tanzania’s eastern coastline, and the yellow stripe represents the country’s mineral wealth.
