Everyday I look at my boss and I feel very inspired! When people talk about down to earth people, then in Br Gerald this is exactly what defines this well used statement! Sometimes I look at him and wonder what really inspires him to do the thing he does, and how he does it. He is so amazing, kind hearted, compassionate and very generous with children.
Today I was amazed when he picked one of the children who was very hyperactive and placed him on his back to calm him down. He walked with him clinging on his back making his way around the whole compound without caring about who was looking. Brother Gerald will never cease to amaze me because he is surely one of a kind!
Since the team at MRC has worked with him he has regularly surprised all the staff and parents at Mary Rice Centre and even the people we work with in the same compound. We have seen him do all kinds of activities, not usually done by a boss of a school – and yet he continues to do so to inspire , entertain and support the children of the Centre.
He is one man who will bend and help his staff in mopping the classroom for the children, wash the children who have an accident, help in cooking, help in fetching water when their is no water in the compound,feeding the children in class and amazingly help all the staff when need be.
The most amazing thing is that above everything else he does, he love spending time with the children in class instead of his office. Without doubt he is a God send and he continues to inspire the staff who so gladly work with him!
