Warm greetings to all! Thank you for all you are providing for our oldest students. They are well on their way through secondary school and we are very excited. Imagine! We have watched them grow since they were just little babes. Thank you for loving them as we do.
First Term ended on a successful note. However, we are sad to report that two students did not return to school after the break. We are always sad to see our students go - especially under difficult circumstances. One of our young woman students dropped out and a young man was taken to another school by his guardians. The case management costs you provide with your sponsorship are so important. As this program grows, we hope that more home visits and counseling can be provided to every student enrolled with The Nyaka AIDS Orphans Project.
Second term started on May 13th, 2013. Our students’ academic performances vary and are determined by factors like hard work, background and the school location. Many are working hard and improving their scores. Those that are not performing well are being counseled and offered additional support to help improve their performance. The S.4 students are looking forward to joining S.5. The mock exams at the end of this term will give us a picture of their academic abilities and help us determine whether to guide a few students toward their chosen vocational path. The efforts of their teachers are very much appreciated by all.
