The students are back at the LAP since September 23rd 2018.

New study program:

The LAP this year opens a second cycle of studies of 4 years.

The first cycle also of 4 years prepares the students to pass the “BEPC” a national exam of general studies. On the third year the students pass a “house exam” on technical studies.

The second cycle is only technical divided in 2 parts. The first 2 years prepare the students to pass a national exam called the BEP Agricole (Agricultural studies certificate) and the following 2 years to pass the BAC PRO Agricole (Agricultural baccalaureate).

School year 2018-2019

Students:

This year we will have 205 students in the first cycle and 37 in the second cycle (total of 242 students: 127 girls and 115 boys) .

New infrastructure:

In order to accommodate all the students we had to build an additional dormitory for the girls. To better control the boys we have also built a new house for an additional supervisor inside the boys compound.

Personnel:

We have added one supervisor for the boys and we are also looking to strengthen the technical personal by recruiting an agronomy teacher. All the other teachers will be the same that during the previous school year.

You will find in attachment an activity report for schoolyear 2017-2018

As you can see the number of students is increasing and we really need your help to communicate our project to your network in order to find resources to run the school.

Fact: One year of additional secondary schooling increases potential earning by 10.6% in Sub-Saharan Africa (source: social value UK, quantifying the Impact of Investment in education)

Thank you for your help.

Middle of June, the students of the 4th year passed the national exam called "BEPC". Students did very well, 32 out of 44 got their exam. This is 72% success rate agiants 29% last year.

Good job from the students and from the teachers and support staff.

After watching a video of an activity day realised by a secondary school in The Netherlands to collect fonds for the LAP, students of the LAP decided to have also an activity day.

Their was a foofball game against a neighbouring secondary school, mode show, cooking competition and traditional dances. It was a great success. You can watch a short video of this special day.

Next year we will go from 188 to over 250 students. Thanks to promote our school around you. We depend on you.

Thank you.

Good results at the end of the second quarter:

Students at the LAP just went through test at the end of the second quarter of the school year 2017-2018.

Results are very encouraging. For the first 3 class levels, results are better than for the first quarter. For the 4th year students we had them gone through a mock exam. The success rate is good: 34% of the students got the exam immediatly, 50% had possibility to go through a second round and 16% were immediatly.

New development for school year 2018-2019:

We will be able to open a "second cycle" of 4 years of study on the next school year. The students will be able to pass the exam called "Bac Pro Agricole" at the end of the 4 year.

We expect to have an additional 45 students on the first year of this program. All students are will be fully boarded.

We will start to build an additional dormitory for the girls and an additional house for a teacher.

Students who get the final exam will be able to start theri own business, keep on studying at university or look for employment with an agricultural enterprise.

Football tournament between classes:

The last year won 5-1 against the before last year. 

We thank you for your continuous support. We expect to have 250 students next school year. We need yours and your friends help.

1-      Information on education problem in Burkina

Since the beginning of the year there has been a lot of problem nationwide within public education system in Burkina: strikes, sittings… This is for primary, secondary and higher education.

The first quarter for secondary school has not been validated. This could lead to a “blank year”.

The other civil servants from the health and justice ministry have been able to get substantial increase in their salary. The education personnel is feeling left out. In addition teachers from the secondary education are doing a lot of overtime hours in other schools than where they are teaching normally. Those hours are out of control and the government has not paid the overtime done last school year.

We are not sure how this will end and we hope that this will not have impact on the LAP. 

2-      Students:

For this school year we have 188 students: 89 boys and 99 girls.

                         Girls             Boys     Total

First year           31                  23        54

Second year       37                 21        58

Third year           14                 18        32

Fourth year         17                  27        44

Total                    99                 89        188

3-      Results first quarter:

Those results are for the general subjects they do not include the agricultural subjects.

First year: 64.8% of the students has above average (highest grade 18.09/20, lowest 6.54)

Second year: 67.2% of the students has above average (highest grade 16.32/20, lowest 7.17)

Third year: 100% of the students has above average (highest grade 17.21/20, lowest 10.10)

 

Second year: 50% of the students has above average (highest grade 14.44/20, lowest 6.09)

 

4-      Extra curriculum activities:

 

Sport activities: football, volley ball and badminton have been organized during the spare time. One football game was organized against a neighboring secondary school. 

Other activities: 5 djembe have been bought for the boys and the 6 sewing machines have been maintained.

5-      Agricultural activities:

Thanks to Charles we have been able better take care of the land maintenance. The fence around the LAP has been reinforced. Each tree planted during the rainy season has been assigned to one children. Waiting for the garden to produce, the chicken coop have produced vegetables for the meals of the students.

We have brought 20 hens, 2 roosters, 3 turkeys and 4 rabbits. The only sow we have gave birth to 7 piglets.

On September 23rd the new school year has started. There are 188 studenst this year at the LAP (100 girls and 88 boys).

Parents went to send their girls to our school because they are in a boarding school. Many teen girls got pregnant when going to secondary school. In the public school near by, at least 15% of the girls under 18 got pregnant...... 

The results of the past year were not very good. In order to improve those results we have made a lot of changes in the teaching staff and supervision staff. First of all we have appointed a new director named Pamoussa.

We can already feel the changes in the behaviour of the students. There is a stricter discipline, but the students seems happier.

During the vacation we have completed one of the building for a library and a teachers room.

The first year that the school was opened, we have lost a student due to meningitis. Since then, each year we are vaccinating all the new students and the students of the last year (the vaccination last 3 years). 

We really appreciate your continuing support, please send the link of our project to friends and families. They might also want to help send a poor child to an agricultural school.

Thank you.
