St. Timothy’s School continues to forge a relationship with its partner school, St. Timothee’s School in Haiti. Five staff members will travel to the school located in remote Boucan-Carré, which is about one and a half hours drive from Port-au-Prince, Haiti. Lisa Lowrance, Kathryn Donohue, Anna Baird, Arrin Dutton, and Rob Cocker will leave for Haiti on January 21 and return to Raleigh on January 25.
In 2015, St. Timothy’s School established a partnership with St. Timothee’s School and Church through the Haiti Partnership Program of the National Association of Episcopal Schools. This program emphasizes partnerships that thrive through meaningful, mutual and personal relationships between schools, their students and their teachers. This will be the third STS delegation visiting St. Timothee’s since the partnership was established. To date, STS has brought supplies and gifts hand-made by STS students to the school, as well as funding for meals and new wooden benches which serve as both desks and pews.
The team will be able to take a limited amount of supplies to the school. STS families can sign up to donate travel size toiletries, small boxes of white chalkboard chalk, flattened soccer balls, small air pumps, and/or composition notebooks. These items can be dropped off by January 18 at the temporary reception area or at Mrs. Lowrance's Spanish classroom.
