Uganda Students All Set To Graduate
Let’s cheer on our Primary 7 class!
The day has come!
Our Primary Seven students are all set to take their National Exams!
This isn’t just happening in our community of Njeru, but is taking place across the entire country of Uganda.
In order to move up into Secondary School, ALL Primary 7 students must pass these exams to graduate.
As you may know, this is the first year we’ve experienced this at Wando International’s Primary School in the slum, because it was only this year that we had P7 students enrolled.
Each year our school has been growing, and we’ve been adding new classrooms to accommodate our student’s progress.
2017 has been filled with nonstop preparing, equipping, and cheering on our 21 National Exam candidates.
Each of the kids has talked about their determination to succeed AND their excitement for the future.
Students Kick Off National Exams
Today the students kicked off official briefings at the local testing center.
Each were told what to expect, how to conduct themselves, and how the entire testing process will take place.
Examinations officially start tomorrow and end this week on Friday!
Just 2 days packed with testing on the material they’ve covered throughout their entire time in Primary School.
Children are positive and feel confident going in tomorrow.
Let’s keep the cheering going for these students as they are SO CLOSE to completing their time in Primary with us, and get set to graduate!
As these twenty-one children move forward, we want to make sure they have a successful path laid ahead for them.
Because they are all still living in the slum, many of their families are unable to offer them them the best guidance and direction.
Some may not even be able to continue their education to secondary school, IF they have no one to advocate for them.
As a way to continue supporting them in the journey, our Child Advocacy Program puts someone 10,000 miles into direct communication with these students.
This is so that they continue to have someone encouraging, guiding, and supporting them as they pursue their GOALS in life.
