Numbers Nemesis— Brookings School Needs More Students

Students at the Cape Ferrelo Adventist School in Brookings, Ore., though few in number, enjoy many advantages.

The most recent is the arrival of late-model computers, printers, and desks, with a professional, volunteer instructor.

Students not only receive normal keyboarding instruction, they practice creating spreadsheets, making labels, using art/drawing programs, and creating graphs and school reports.

Their biggest project last year was making a photo directory for the Brookings Adventist Church.

Other Benefits

Students also care for a school garden and greenhouse, with vegetable and flower starts to sell as a Home and School project. They also help build birdhouses and planter boxes for sale, and near the end of the school year, they learned about outdoor living on a weekend camping trip.

“The only thing students here are lacking is enough classmates,” says their pastor, Jim Bollin.

“They have good classroom facilities that are paid for, a wonderful campus setting in the country, supportive constituent churches, and an enthusiastic teacher. Those interested in learning more about the School, church, or community, should phone me at (541) 469-3888.” •
