It’s the end of term for the children of Future Stars school, and also for the residential children studying elsewhere in Kibera.
For those who study at Future Stars, end of term exams are almost over. Every child from the youngest to the oldest is assessed in each subject to ensure they are achieving their potential and to find any difficulties that can be resolved next term.
John and Vincent, studying in Form 1 at Jeremic Academy (high school) have already completed their end of term exams and have today received their school reports. It seems that both boys need to concentrate a little more on their studies, but this is probably the same for teenage boys the world over! John is doing particularly well in the science subjects and has achieved the fourth position in his class, with Vincent just one place behind him. This high school education will give the boys the best hope for a positive future as independent adults.
