Two of our bright sponsored students
We are happy to report that our students will be returning to school at the end of June and resuming their studies on campus. We are overjoyed, to say the least, with the thought of our classrooms, once again, being filled with discussions, laughter and, most importantly, learning. The silence on campus for the past two months has been overwhelmingly sad.
Our staff has done an incredible job of maintaining contact with all of our families to ensure that emotional supports were in place in case they were necessary and that learning continued throughout the Covid closure. Parents came to school weekly to pick up learning materials and to return those that had been completed. For those families who were unable to make it to school, our staff delivered and picked up materials at their homes. Our teachers worked feverishly to make sure they were corrected and comments were made to support the academic advancement of each student.
The National Exams for our class 7 students will now take place in October and our class 4 students will take their exams in November. We will continue to make sure they receive the best education available and strive to make sure that they will again score in the top percentile for the nation. We would be remiss if we didn’t mention our younger children. They are like sponges. They soak up all that they learn and in turn raise the bar on their education. They badgered their parents daily about returning to school, begging for the constancy and structure of the classroom. It is with your continued support that we are able to continually create and supplement our curriculum to provide extraordinary educational experiences for those children.
We continue to look forward to hosting your visits and sharing our classrooms and learning experiences with you. Our Facebook page and Instagram are updated regularly so you can watch our achievements and adventures in learning.
Stay safe and healthy. Ahsante Sana for your continued support of our wonderful students.
