It was a memorable Saturday, 2nd in Emergence Logbessou; as members of staff gathered together to wish their First Lady, the Proprietress and Founder of Emergence Bilingual Schools a happy and prosperous New Year 2019.The atmosphere was replete with cheers, laughter and beautiful men/women, whose celebration of their boss-lady was heartfelt and profound. An expertly-painted portrait of both school campuses with her image in the middle of them was specially handed to her by one of the Head teachers on behalf of all present. The proprietress, in her short address to the staff body, expressed her joy and deepest appreciation for such a well thought-out gift and urged her workers to continue in their spirit of commitment and hard work towards the institution. She stated that service to the schools should be done out of love for duty rather than reward, seeing that God who knows the intent of each heart rewards accordingly. She assured them all that she is particularly interested in their growth and social stability and will do her best to make ensure that sincere efforts are duly appreciated. She ended by wishing all her staff members a truly prosperous new year 2019. A common meal was shared and with no differentiating between administrative staff, teachers, drivers or janitors, the proprietress gave each person a big, motherly hug and later on joined in the merry-making and dancing of the evening. That; indeed, was a fresh and delightful restart of the new year!!
