Congratulations New Form 1 Students

Good Samaritan Home Director Mercy Thuo and her staff reported December 30 about the new high students who start their first year in February.  Because of the high marks in the national test that the children have received, The Good Samaritan Home in Mathare Slum, Nairobi tries to place them out of the slum and into boarding schools which provide a quality education.

Mercy writes:  We are waiting to take new form one [freshmen] to school come February 2011.  Mostly we take them to boarding schools.  This is an episode which requires more money because of buying personal effects, beddings, mattresses, transport, stationary, etc. 

They had good performance in their national examinations.
