The end of the school year is approaching

It seems strange to announce the end of the school year when students have not had the chance to be in school at all. Schools in the Philippines have been closed since March 2020. Distance learning – in the form of online teaching and study modules - has been the norm for more than a year. All of our students have had to make use of this. It hasn’t been easy for them as internet in the squatter areas is slow and many families lack the technology for their children to go online.

School year 2020/2021 has truly been a challenge, and yet, despite all the difficulties, the students will finish their school year next month. We have almost 600 students who will move up to the next level; some entering college, some even graduating from college. The programs for the school dropouts will have students graduating from an accelerated high school program called ALS (Alternative Learning System): in one year’s time these dropouts have been able to achieve a high school certificate! Younger school dropouts will be able to enter elementary school next school year. Altogether, more than 150 students enrolled in our school dropout programs will successfully move on to their next level!

As far as we know, the local government will not be re-opening the school buildings in August. So, we will continue with online and modular teaching. It is a difficult task for our staff as we often see the lack of motivation among our students due to these extra tough circumstances. We are keenly aware that without encouragement and support many will stop their education. The role of coaching our students is more necessary than ever and truly appreciated. As Young Focus staff we also want to express our appreciation of YOUR support as you continue to help us through your donations! THANK YOU!
