Fantastic news from Guatemala, where one of our old students, who we put through school and teacher training college has got a job as director of a rural school. This is the first evidence of the fruits of our long-term program and we hope to see much more of this in the future. Many thanks
Thanks to scholarships, over 70 children will be moving onto the next grade here in Guatemala, with results averaging over 70%. With our English classes we give, the average in this subject was over 80%. Secondary education is so important and thanks to all the donors who have made this possible.
Happy New Year and cheers
Greetings. The final results of our children in secondary school have all come through, and they have all passed with flying colours, which is a great achievement. We will be adding a further 30 children in secondary school in 2010 so to start fundraising for next year, I will be embarking on a Charity Challenge this weekend, climbing 4 volcanoes in 6 days, so please, if you can, spare a penny or two to help raise funds for such a good cause.
Our secondary school children continue to surprise on the upside, with their second set of exam results due this month. Despite schools being shut, their learning has continued at pace, and their results should confirm the positive strides they have made this year in secondary education. To add to the 80 children we have so far in secondary education, we plan to add a further 40 for 2010, taking us well over 100 children who would otherwise not even dream about dreaming of this opportunity.
The year flies by, and the exam results for our secondary school children are due soon. They feel confident, and so they should, they are great kids and very dedicated to their education. The costs of education in Guatemala is rising, though we will do all we can that these kids don't fall behind.
