CW is in final stretch to end school 2022 BUSY!

By Diana Rae Lewis | Founder and President

6th grade promoted to public HighSchool send off

CW's final stretch of 2022 school year. BUSY!!

BUSY is not a big enough word as CW director Ruth and teachers scramble to get it all done in 2 weeks: final exams, parent/teacher meetings and student evaluations, plus. And the Christmas Party for 100 excited girls.

CW sixth grade students prepare to graduate and pass on their responsibilities to the 5th grade, next years senior class. The emotional transition from our CW school family environment is bittersweet, with hugs and tears all round after 8 years in the protective loving arms of CW. Young women now, they are ready for the celebrations and serious ceremony with parents. The presenter speaks of their maturity, earned confidence and academic preparedness that will open many doors for them going forward. 

Next March our graduates will enter the co-ed public high school prepared. They are automatically new members of the CW alumnae club for mentoring and support.

Planning for next year:
Meanwhile the rains came late, but prepared the soil to plant. Our parent group wasted no time and planted the potatoes for the CW school meal program that will be ready to harvest in 2023.
Our parents are really special! It took a few years for the trust in CW to grow and for them to understand the importance of educating their daughters. Watching the achievements of their daughters expand, they are puffed up with pride. Now every year after school breaks for summer, the parents will come when the school is closed and look at what might need attention (painting doors and repairing the cages for the guinea pig production (cultural source of protein) and then they organize themselves to do the work. Just amazing!

Birthday celebrations at home are pretty rare. So each month CW celebrates all the birthdays for that month. The Five year old birthdays are all celebrated together, etc. and combined with their promotion to the first grade - a BIG deal for our 5 year olds. CW has a stash of California donated clothes for moments like this. Excited, the girls get dressed up to eat cake and get a real happy birthday present - filled to the brim with Laughter and joy.

Director Ruth shares her gratitude:
Each year in November we honor 
the MOTHER who guides us and protects
all of us at Chicuchas Wasi school for Girls.

Lead Teacher Haide (photo in blue dress) and her students share their feelings about CW School:
Haide reflects: “I am a happier and stronger woman along with my students who are developing into happy prepared and empowered young women”.
 
Students contribute: “My school is like my home and my teacher is my second mother”. “ I feel like I am home, relaxed and I know I am loved here.”
 
Lead teacher Rita (photo with her kindergarten girls) is ready to celebrate Christmas. Merry Christmas from her girls.

Happy Holidays and many blessings to us all for a brighter, pandemic free new reality.

Our tuition based Maria School business plan to support CW school for girls going forward
Soon we will generate good income to support the Maria school as well as the Chicuchas Wasi school for girls as it reaches full student enrollment. 

Cusco parents who demand quality private school education for their college bound children, plan to educate them at very competitive foreign and national universities. We really need your donations for this start-up move for longevity success in Peru. This is the perfect business for CW.org as the demand is high here. Covid permanently closed down many private schools that were functioning unregulated in small rented buildings before Covid. The CW Maria school is a new beautiful modern and colorful primary school built to deliver quality education and welcomed by the Ministry of Education.

Meanwhile please help us keep the CW girls school open: Until the Maria School enrollment is generating enough income, we will still need your support to maintain the Chicuchas Wasi School for girls that we continue to deliver at no charge to our poor families. Please see PIE and donate. Thank you so much for the gift of education for girls. See images of CW Girls school and the new Maria School

Chicuchas Wasi School for Girls says
                THANK YOU 
Your continued support makes the difference!

CW's future when the (tuition-based ) 'Maria Tuition School' classes are filled, will be self-supporting. CoVid upset our plans to open the Maria school in 2020 due to strict lock-down. We will begin enrolling Maria School's new students after Christmas for the new school year 2023.

NOTE: Thank you all for hanging in there with us. We have a little way to go yet but the impact of our work is self evident in the success of our girls...some are at the university today.
