The long school summer holidays started on the 1st of June. Most children will not return till the 26th August, but for classes 5 and 8 this means Summer Camp from 23rd June to 18th August, 8am to 1pm. Summer camp helps prepare the classes for their respective final exams, in February 2019. The children receive the extra care and attention needed to ensure they cover more of the syllabus so they have a good chance to pass exams.
Summer camp is however, not always easy to get off the ground. Most children come from a background where education is not a priority or understood to be the chance for a better life. Knowing this, the teachers actively visit parents and children to explain why this is essential and to encourage attendance.
