“The basic purpose of all Bahá’í Summer Schools, whether in East or West, is to give the believers the opportunity to fully acquaint themselves, not only by mere study but through whole-hearted and active collaboration in various Bahá’í activities, with the essentials of the Administration and in this way enable them to become efficient and able promoters of the Cause…”
(From a letter written on behalf of the Guardian to an individual believer, September 25, 1933).
“Last Summer School at Yerrinbool was one of the most inspiring, enlightening and fun Summer Schools ever. The program was well-planned and had a wide variety of topics. There was an atmosphere of fellowship and people mingled widely. Many races were represented; people came from all over Australia as well as Samoa and Iran. The sound of laughter echoed through the dining hall till fairly late at night.”
“Everyone was having such a great time, we didn’t want to go home!
We eagerly look forward to next Summer School.”
