Christian Parjibo was in awe as she entered the Silver Bird Cinema at TM Mall on Tuesday, March 13, to watch the marvelously released epic Black Panther. Black Panther’s recent release around the world has gained traction in Liberia, with many trooping to theaters to see the futuristic tech styled nation of Wakanda.
Christiana Parjibo was among 30 students of J.W. Pearson feted by Bill Waterman, Operations Director of Bridge PSL. Ten students were taken from Grades 4, 5 and 6 and accompanied to the theater by staff of Bridge PSL. Upon arrival at the cinema, the students were led to the snack desk, where each of them were given popcorn and soft drink to munch on during viewing time.
For Christiana and her friends, it was an experience which marks a red letter day in their young lives. “It was my first time entering the theater and I really enjoyed the show [movie],” she said with a gleeful smile.
Sean O’Malley, Academic Director of Bridge PSL, said he believes the visit to the cinema was a celebration of high performing students of J.W. Pearson. “At Bridge, we love to celebrate high achieving students, including those from J.W. Pearson. Ours is a partnership to build stronger schools and stronger communities.”
