Schools open in the middle of the pandemic

The government finally issued the year 2021 school calendar and 1st term started on January 4, 2021, right in the middle of Covid-19 pandemic.  Obviously, parents and students are all anxious and nervous of what may happen next with the pandemic but a bigger problem facing the country now is the frequent burning of school buildings and property by students.  Since schools opened, 10 secondary schools reported arson incidents and damage to property.

 

This situation is not a surprise because schoolchildren have had a tough year of uncertainty in 2020.  They are worried about the lost year after schools closed in March for nine months due to Covid and they are worried about the upcoming exams that they obviously feel they have not properly prepared for.  All of these factors are contributing to the student unrest in the country.

 

Nenkashe Education Centre has eight children who are all candidates for exams, one in class 8 and seven in Form 4.  Fortunately, none of their schools reported any arson incidents and we pray that they will perform well despite their low level of exam preparation.

 

It has been a challenging quarter for Nenkashe but we managed to complete our second food distribution in October 2020 where we managed to visit all 31 children at their homes and encouraged them to stay safe and continue revising their school lessons the best they can in the absence of teacher guidance.  Your support has helped families reduce the high food bills due to the prolonged stay of children at home.

 

We were not able to hold our Annual Seminar in 2020 due to Covid but we have scheduled to hold it in April 2021 when schools close and another one in August 2021.  It is during these gatherings that Nenkashe counsellors get an opportunity to teach the children life skills to help them make informed decisions, solve problems, think critically and manage their lives in a healthy and productive manner.

 

Thank you for your support.  Please pray that our children will stay safe and that life will get back to normal soon.
