A Note From Betty (December 2018)
Thank you all for the support you have given us throughout 2018. It has been a wonderful year! We managed to have our first Sports Day, which was an achievement for Rock of Ages. The students all received t-shirts and shorts, and began the day marching on the Kampala-Jinja Highway, inviting the community to join in on our event. It was just fun and we continue praising God for His goodness. We give glory and honor to the Almighty who used all the donors, friends of ROA, and well-wishers who contributed towards this event.
Our Primary seven students took their Primary Leaving Exams on the 4th and 5th of November. There were 18 students and we believe all will make it to join high school. Their results will be sent out to us in the 1st week of January 2019. Top class graduated on Wednesday (12/5). It was a fun day with all classes performing different activities like singing, dancing, and reciting poems. Our dear parents were present, especially the moms and a few dads. It was a colorful and lastly day as food and drinks were also served!
Most of our students were promoted to next classes with only a few retained (held back). Our teachers have done a great job with the learners. Most of our learners do read and write (even those in nursery!). Those who were retained had a challenge of reading for themselves during the exams.
During this term, we haven’t registered any serious illness or accident, apart from malaria and cold. Thank God for the protection upon our kids and it’s our prayer that He protects them during this long break.
Construction is still on going (at the new school facility). Thanks to all for making a difference and making ROA a better place for the children of Mbiko. We strongly believe God will use these kids to transform the village of Mbiko though education and knowing the love of Jesus. It only takes one child be the world changer.
Once again thank you so much and have a Merry Christmas,
Founder and Director of Rock of Ages Community School
