Uganda National Exams Are Done!
Primary Seven students can take a break.
Congratulations Primary 7 boys and girls!
The top grade in school has finally reached the end of their school year, capping it off with a rigorous round of National Exams.
This was their last stop as candidates for graduation, and they needed to pass in order to move on to Secondary School.
While the tests were completed last Friday, the results are not in just yet. We still have to wait another two weeks before all the scores are tallied up and the names of students who passed are released.
This is NO WORRY to us though, because we have been preparing our students for these exit exams the whole of this year!
Extra lessons, Saturday school, one-on-one tutoring sessions…Anything we could do to get these 21 boys and girls set up for success.
Countdown to the End of 2017 School Year
While our Primary 7 students eagerly await to see how they did, the rest of our Uganda Primary School is carrying on like normal.
We still have one more month to go to the end of the school year!
Wando International’s REMAINING 275 STUDENTS, enrolled in Nursery through Primary Six classes, will be preparing for their final exams come the end of November.
With ALL students and teachers finishing up the school year completely on Friday, December 8th.
With the holidays approaching fast, we want to remind our readers that Wando’s primary school is purposely located in the slum to help children experiencing extreme poverty.
These children come from vulnerable families, and typically go without basic needs like medicine and sleeping materials.
When December hits and our students leave for holidays, they won’t be receiving their normal breakfast and lunches anymore, which most families rely on.
This puts them into an even more serious state of survival.
Since we ourselves are unable to fully meet the needs of our students’ families, we’ve opened up this opportunity to people we call “Child Advocates.”
Our Child Advocacy Program connects Advocates in the U.S. directly with our Case Managers in Uganda.
THEY WORK TOGETHER to uncover the physical, psychological, and emotional needs of a child using our free online messaging platform.
The program is designed to help provide support to these children, in and out of school, while allowing for real bonds and relationships to be formed.
Friendship, mentoring, selfless service, love…whatever you want to call it, our Child Advocacy Program puts that opportunity in someone’s hands to truly MAKE AN IMPACT in a child’s life.
