Greetings. Our school in Honduras is coming to the end of the second year and the children's results have been superb. 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.
Despite all one reads in the news and sees on the TV, Honduras is trying to continue as normal. Our project, especially the secondary school has continued without break, allowing the children to still receive their secondary education. Exams so far this year have produced incredible results, and all the children should be moving up a grade at the end of the year. Numbers are expected to double for next year, which is an incredible feat. Secondary education is paramount, and our roject allows many children and adults to be able to take advantgae of it.
Our secondary school in Honduras is going well. The four Honduras secondary school teachers we emply are doing excellent work, and the numbers of children over the coming years is growing as interest spreads throughout the region. To think these children would never have dreamt of getting this far....an outstanding achievement
Well, our first year passed as our own secondary school gave secondary education to 24 children. These children have now moved up a grade, with a further 30 children inrolled for the new term. This has meant we have had to hire two more secondary school teachers and children are now coming from surrounding comunities to receive secondary education....a very exciting year in prospect.
The children in our new secondary school, where we pay for the salaries of the teachers, have recently taken their mid-term exams, and the results seem to be good, which is a great step forward for the future. With 25 children between the ages of 12 and 24 receiving first-time secondary education now, the future looks good. In 2009 we plan to open up the school to surrounding villages and the numbers of students will rise dramatically.
