"Graduation" at primary school 2018
Two weeks remain until the end of the academic school year in Tanzania. It has gone so quickly and the children have worked extremely hard.
We are proud to share that 100% of our boys and girls passed their compulsory primary school leaving exams and are now ready to begin high school in January.
The traditional leaving primary ceremonies have been wonderful moments for each student to celebrate their achievements. It has also been an emotional time saying farewell to their teachers and school friends. To mark the transition a special party at Malaika was organised for all the children to spend time together and have fun. In addition, we visited one of the students, who is living far away after being reunited with her family, to congratulate and enrol her in a nearby high school. See photos!
As we look ahead to 2019, 12 students will be in high school, six pupils in primary school and five younger ones in kindergarten. Pre-school learning is such an important and exciting time for infants. When toddlers arrive at Malaika, they can only speak Kiswahili. As soon as children enter pre-school they begin to learn English, and grow in so many ways too, giving them a head start in their education.
Our aim at Malaika is to give to everyone the chance to develop their interests and skills through a quality education, helping them to reach their full potential.
Thank you for generous commitment in 2018 and supporting the children at Malaika through the school year!
We have started a new project for the 2019 school year and hope you will continue to make the gift of education this year
