Fathers Day in Honduras

Last week was Father´s Day here in Honduras. The GVI Phoenix secondary school put on a spectacular event for all of the fathers. They had been preparing for over two weeks in advance with the help of the teachers.

Over 30 fathers showed up for the mid-afternoon celebration. Many groups from the 6th, 7th and 8th grade classes put on various acts skits, songs and poems, all in honour of their fathers.

The grand finale skit played by the oldest students had the often stoic padres rolling in laughter. The event was followed by a raffle for a gift, and cake and soda for all. A great celebration and an excellent effort by all of the students from grades 6, 7, and 8.


How does GVI Phoenix make a difference?
