when mr. christoph schmitter, president of the swiss schneller society (schweizer verein für die schneller schulen im nahen osten), visited our school from the 20th to the 23rd of october 2008, he realized that our school badly needed a video projector for use in church and the boarding department. he told the director that the schweizer verein would like to donate a projector to jlss. he asked the director to buy one and send him the bill. as the director was in beirut on monday 28 october 2008 to apply for a visa for his upcoming visit to switzerland, he went to a few computer stores and finally found an epson emp-s5 multimedia projector on special offer. he bought it for us$ 880.00 and handed it to mr. martin bernhard, head of the boarding department, who was delighted that his department finally got the projector it badly needed. it will be used for presentation in church, to show movies to boarding students, and in training workshops for the educators. we express our most sincere gratitude to our swiss partners and friends especially to mr. christoph schmitter for this projector.
