Peter will have to come in and caption these, since I wasn’t there~ but here is the culmination of some of Peter’s hard work this year: the graduation of Years 1 and 2 at our primary school. At the end of the first term, precious few students were passing their tests (50% to pass). By the end of year, those numbers more than doubled. Good work, Mr. Peter! And good work to the students!

P.S. Sorry for there only being a few pics… these were all I could get to load.

This is the graduating class of 2013 from the Primary School, aka Grade Six. I am not sure why none of them smiled, I took three and this is the best one. Five of these children passed, and will now have to pay to go to secondary school~ Grade Seven.

This is the school kids awaiting the presentation and ceremony. When a child got a certificate, a parent would go up, give them a present, usually candy and sprinkle baby powder on them. Our Host family’s children took overall first place in Grade One, overall first place in Grade Two and many first places in Grade Three. It was almost a shut out! I am very proud of the kids, they really did do a lot of work this year. And, I hope they are building skills and habits for the rest of their lives.
