Last year was the first year of running our primary school, and through the year we were having to make small changes to our operations to try to ensure we were servig the neediest kids. Because of that, we weren't running at capacity.
However, we are very please to report that within the first couple of weeks of opening our doors in 2015, we are almost full having 68 kids attending every day at the time of writing. As well as receiving quality academic education from our fully qualified staff of teachers, they also benefit from the opportunity to get involved in music, art, drama & sports activities. This means that all kids, not just the academic ones, get the chance to shine.
And they shine brightly, with big smiles lighting up their faces as they pick up a recorder and play some notes, or a paintbrush and fill a sheet of paper with colour.
We are excited to have Derek and Joseph with us, seen in the picture studying hard. They are brothers and compete to outdo each other in class - both trying to end each term with the highest marks in their class. They have made the transition from the streets, where they used to go every day to scavenge for food and beg for money, through our transition class, and now into our school. They both love Maths, and hope to pursue careers in banking when they're older.
