VHHS Travels to Uganda
The Vernon Hills High School (VHHS) delegation greatly enjoyed their two week July 2017 trip to visit our sister school St Jerome COVE in Uganda. This was the fourth time that VHHS students and staff have traveled to Kapeeka, Uganda. Some of the activities the group participated in were painting three classrooms, conducting a teacher workshop on reading comprehension, organizing a mini Olympics field day, teaching in classrooms, and visiting COVE sponsored children in their homes and at secondary schools. Of course the highlight for all is always spending time playing and chatting with the students of St Jerome COVE. Another significant moment was visiting our past St. Jerome COVE elementary graduates now enrolled at St. John and St. Cyprian Secondary Schools. Their teachers gave us glowing accounts regarding their work and character. I was so proud to see our students thriving in these secondary environments.

VHHS Senior Kelsey summed the experience best with her comment, "I learned that you can be completely happy even with very little. It really made me appreciate how lucky I am for my family and the opportunities here at Vernon Hills. I am sincerely humbled and will strive to live with the just the same amount of heart as the kids at St. Jerome COVE."
