Hi!

This is my first holiday from my new secondary school that is called Mother Theresa of Calcuta. The teachers there are really good and they also teach very well compared to the other secondary schools which I was at before and those are called Mairiva and Mount Kilimanjaro Secondary School Mama Theresa works so hard so that we can go to a great school and get a good education but it’s very hard to go to a great school that teaches well because it’s very expensive. The subjects are very hard and I am working all the time so that I can do well on my exams and reach my goals. Our holiday is one month and two weeks, so I will go back to school on July 12th and I will be at school until December. That will be our next holiday. So I spend more time in school than at home and our school has only two holidays in a year.

This is Jackline am writing from Moshi office. Am now in my holiday from school up to 8th July that will be the end of my holiday. The weather here now is becoming very bad because of the cold season. Am now in a new school called Mairiva and the school it is in Arusha. In my new school I have to do twelve subject while before I was taking only eight subjects. Here are the differences. In my new school we have to wake up early in the morning. We usually  after we wake up we go to take shower then we put on uniform after that every one go to do her duty this is to make the environment clean. After all that we have our breakfast we usually have porridge in our breakfast. After breakfast we start our classes. That all about my new school daily schedule.

For the rest of my holiday I will be with the kids at the orphanage. I will be helping the house mothers with cooking, washing utensils, cleaning the house and the environment. After that I will take off to the village to see my grandparents. There I will be helping them for some time then I will go back to the orphanage to prepare my self to go back to school.

Jackline is becoming quite the lady. She is always helping around the orphanage with cooking and cleaning, as well as being a mentor for the younger kids. She recently transferred to a new school, where she is more focused on studying and getting good marks. She will be taking computer classes too!
