In Uganda, you go first to Pre-school, for 3 years, Baby class, Middle class and Top class, in the villages are not many Pre- schools, but in the towns there are many. Children can go to Pre-school when they are around 3 years old. After the Pre-school, they go to Primary for 7 years. And at the end of P7 there is an important, national examination. It will determine in which division you come, some secondary schools only accept the highest, Division 1 and 2. There is a lot of pressure and it is a trying time for the candidates.
On Monday they start the exams, Nation wide. Today we had a wonderful time in our YWAM Harmony school, encouraging and praying for the P7 candidates.
Starting with the flag ceremony.
Singing of the National anthem
We had come with some staff of the YWAM Soroti base, and David let the singing
That was fun, teachers, pupils and YWAM staff joined hands and voices!
There was an encouragement from the Bible and we prayed for the P7 candidates
The P7 students also had a song for us
One of the teachers provided a cake with firework!!!!I believe the students were so happy and encouraged, it brought us all together and there was a lot of laughter and fun... After that the classes continued, but after the lollipop the children (and teachers) got, I don't know if there was a lot of concentration in class.....
