On Monday we waved goodbye to our Std 4 students as they boarded a mini-bus to travel to our sister school in Magugu to sit their first national exams.
They were so excited!! Most of these kids have never travelled away from home before. So a ride in a mini-bus, time away together, a new place, new friends to meet, are all very exciting prospects for them. With 2 teachers and Mama Ben, our school bus driver, they set off to arrive 3 1/2 hours later in Magugu, a large village south of Arusha.
They will be in Magugu for the rest of this week, starting their first national exams on Wednesday. I think we are more nervous than them!!!! This is the first time our school has ever participated in the national exam system. More news to come…..
