Terranova Sends Letters of Appreciation

Over the last 13 years, Woodward has built and grown a sister school relationship with Terranova School in Mazabuka, Zambia. The school educates 400 students from grades 1 through 12, and has become one of the most successful public schools in all of southern Africa.

Spearheaded by Middle School teacher and assistant principal George Dietz, each year, the Woodward community bands together to raise funds in support of Terranova. Those funds go to purchasing books, computer equipment, school supplies, uniforms, and more. All told, Woodward's contributions have helped grow the Terranova campus to 20 classroom buildings, a library stocked full of books, bathrooms, living quarters, a computer lab, and science labs.

Last month, Mr. Dietz, on behalf of Woodward, received several letters of thanks from Terranova students of varying ages. We've embedded them below in their entirety.
