Some of the girls at Transitions go to public high school where they were in ninth grade this year. In Cambodia, public schools have exams at the end of ninth and twelfth grade, meaning it was time for these girls to give it their all! This year at Shine Career School we developed an intensive tutoring program to help our students get ahead. They worked hard, studying subjects like math, English, history, geography, physics, and chemistry in order to pass their ninth grade exam. We are happy to announce that every one of the girls passed and will move ahead to tenth grade! It took two whole days to complete the national exam, but they all did it, while learning the value of perseverance and hard work. After the the exam we held an end of school party with puzzles, card games, movies and special snacks. We are so proud of what they have accomplished and what the future will bring!
