Education is the Key to a Successful Future

Dear Friends,

Our campus has been buzzing with activity since school reopened in July.  The students and staff resumed teaching and learning as if there had been no disruption.  We can not say enough about our incredible staff.  They are continually working to find new learning techniques for the students and at the same time to increase their knowledge of educational approaches and materials to strengthen the curriculum. A day does not go by when we are not approached by a parent, family member or director of a local orphanage asking for educational assistance for a child in their care.  It is with your continued support that we are able to offer these children an opportunity for a brighter future. 

October started off with our Class 7 students taking their national exams.  They could not have been better prepared for success and we are confident in their abilities.  It will be at least another month before we are notified of their exam results, but we continue to be hopeful knowing we did our best to prepare them and they did their best.  

Our younger students continue to excel in their classes.  We make sure daily that we are presenting their material with the goal of tapping into all of their different learning styles.  Many of the teachers spend time outside instructing the students and providing them with an atmosphere free of our structured four walls. As we are constantly reminded, learning does not just happen in the classroom, but occurs on the playing fields, in conversation with a peer or adult, or can be found when picking up a book for pleasure or for research purposes. 

Our staff is as diverse as our students in their interests. Some have a tremendous knowledge of history, while others are fascinated with science and math, and others incorporate their love of the arts into their curriculum; all allowing the students to explore their studies in an unconventional way.  We are lucky to have a staff that is so multifaceted!  

If you haven't had the opportunity to visit us yet we would love for you to come and volunteer and share your knowledge and expertise.  It is with your financial assistance and continued support of our endeavours that we continue to flourish.  We would love for you to follow our adventures in learning on Facebook at Ikirwa School Project or on Instagram@ikirwa.school.  We update each platform regularly with pictures and anecdotes of the students’ daily activities. 

Stay safe and healthy.  Ahsante sana for your continued support of our amazing students.
