Dear Friends and partners,

It has been a good year for the most part at Acres of Mercy. A few key highlights: -

  1. On 30th January 2018 we had an enrollment at the school of 106. Of these 53% (56) were boys and 47% (50) were girls.
  2. At the end of the year when schools closed in October 2018, we had a total enrollment of 118 students, 58% (68%) were boys and 42% (50) were girls. There was an increase in boys’ enrolment while girls’ enrolment remained constant.
  3. Average school attendance for Boys throughout the year was 83.8% while Girls’ average attendance was 92.3%
  4. 21 students completed their Primary level education at our school (Acres of Mercy Learning Centre). We expect a 100% transition into post primary education.
  5. Our reading culture keeps on improving. Books borrowed and read from the library was 479 for the two months between August 27th and October 27th 2018, a 120% increase from the book borrowed in a 3-month second term.
