Although I seem to spend most of my life sitting in front of my laptop, I haven’t, before now, ever Blogged….a new departure!
So, it’s been an interesting year, with lots of positives:
Our Standard 8, now to be called Class 8, have just finished their KCPE exams and done incredibly well, so we have ended the year on a real high. With 15/16 children obtaining over 300 marks this is a real achievement. Now the big search is on to try and find sponsorship for them to continue their education at secondary level.
Goodbye Class 8
We had a brilliant Founders Day and celebrated 10 years of existence….starting small and growing year on year.
Founder’s Day September 27th, Peter Hardman’s birthday
With two more projects in the pipeline, extending the lower Primary to accommodate an increased number of students as the Kenyan system is changing and we’re moving from 4-8-4 to 2-6-6 which means we lose the top two years in three years’ time. So, to maintain our limit of 140, and more importantly, to keep our exam centre status we must increase the littles up to 18 in both PP1 & PP2
