Honoring the 2014 Na'amat Technological High School Graduates
May 7, 2014
Roughly 90 students from the All-Girls Na'amat Technological High School in Nazareth have overcome considerable odds to graduate in 2014. The girls have limited opportunity to travel within Israel or meet students from other segments of society. The prospect of being honored for their courage and achievement motivates them during difficult times when they are tempted to drop out of school. Additionally, they receive an opportunity to spend a day at the Walworth Barbour American International School in Even Yehuda, mingling with students from a range of countries and backgrounds. Likewise, the international students normally do not get to meet students from Nazareth.
As the WBAIS tradition of hosting and honoring the Na'amat students deepens, students from both schools develop understanding, bonds of friendship and on their own begin to initiate reciprocal visits. We are grateful to both sides for their warm hospitality and openness to get to know the other side.
