As each parish celebrated Catholic School Day in the Catholic Diocese of Tombura-Yambio, eight educational centers of Rii Yubu Payam came together and celebrated the day with diverse activities to create a memorable experience for everyone. The combination of religious ceremonies, community meals, student performances, teacher recognition, and sports activities demonstrates a holistic approach to celebrating the importance of education.
The celebration of the Eucharist was held to bless and give thanks for the education and the opportunity to learn and providing a meal for everyone in attendance is a great way to bring people together and ensure that nobody goes hungry.
During the celebration, the performance of the eight schools was recognized to showcase the talents and achievements of the students from each of the eight educational centers leading to celebrating the hard work and dedication of students.
