Five hundred and forty-seven students of Epauto Adventist Senior Secondary School with their teachers are reaching out to their parents and the wider communities in Port Vila, Vanuatu.
The whole school has been divided into 14 groups, with each group allocated to visit an Adventist church in Port Vila and take charge of Sabbath services.
“Leading in the church’s services will build student confidence while at the same time, providing an opportunity for the school to inform parents of what it is doing, and in a way re-enforcing the idea that Epauto is a district school for all Efate,” said principal Willie Luen.
Sabbath, April 13 was the first for Epauto to begin its visits to churches in 2019. A group went to Freshwind Adventist Church in Port Vila where they ran all their Sabbath programs, including sharing testimonies, singing songs and organising the church into Sabbath school lesson study groups.
Epauto recorded another increase in enrolments in 2019 with 547 students and 32 teachers (last year’s enrolment was 479). Fifty per cent of this year’s students are from other faith backgrounds.
Another milestone achievement was reached this year with 42 students now doing year 13 for the first time in both science and arts classes.
