ELCJHL Schools: Creative Writing Project

A recent publication for Palestinian children is the result of the teamwork of seven student editors in sixth grade from the Evangelical Lutheran School of Hope in Ramallah. Children from various schools in Palestine contributed articles, poems, stories, and art work for Al Raja al Sagheer, (The Little Hope), which may be one of the first children’s magazine in Palestine written by children in grades 1-6. According to the editors, only children younger than thirteen were allowed to submit entries. This is the fifth issue for this publication, which is underwritten by local donors and businesses. Such activities are important to the Lutheran Schools’ commitment to encouraging creativity and higher level thinking skills as part of a holistic education.
