Parents were invited to the program which was started with the children singing the Lebanese national anthem.
The director welcomed the parents, delivered a short address on the occasion, and said the opening prayer.
Children from all classes of the Junior School contributed to the program. They danced, sang and performed with great enthusiasm to the delight of their teachers and proud parents.
We express our thanks to all the teachers who worked hard with our junior children to produce the wonderful program.
We especially thank our music teacher, Mr. Joseph Sleilati, for the music he composed, the lyrics he wrote, and his hard work in teaching our children.
We also thank our sports' teacher, Mr. Michael Karam, for the dances he taught our children.
We thank Mrs. Rita Chakrina, and Mr. Elie Farhat for organizing and coordinating the program.
We finally thank all the parents who attended in order to encourage their children.

We especially thank the National Evangelical Church in Beirut for sending these presents which delighted all our students. A belated thank you goes also to the Sunday School children of the Beirut Church for sending Christmas presents to JLSS children last January.

The Boarding Department celebrated Easter with a chapel service held in St. Michael's Church on Thursday 21 March 2013 at 7.00 PM. The director delivered a short address on the meaning of Easter, and the bible readings were read by Miss Souad Boutros and Mr. Elias Haddad.
The school doctor, Dr. Samir Hamawi, lead the children who very enthusiastically sang the Holy Week and Easter hymns. The director concluded the service with prayer.
