Hi everyone!

It has now been two week since my holiday started. My time is school was great and I did well in my classes.

This last Saturday, we went to Mama Theresa’s wedding. Our mama got married to Vivek! They just flew back to the states and we, too are going to leave for our villages in a few days. We will go back to school on the 4th of January.

Next year will be a little different for I will be a candidate. In ninth grade, we sit for these National Exams (they are done all over the country on the same day and are exactly identical). I pray that I get to do the exams and do well on them.

I wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Hi  everyone!

I am now in eighth grade at The Royal Secondary School and I am working on my Blog. I am on a holiday for one month. I am really doing well at school. In my secondary classes, my favorite subjects are Physics, Chemistry and Biology.

I rank number 6 in my class. There are 19 students in my class and I believe this small number of students will give us the chance to understand what the teachers are teaching. I am also happy to see the technology center that MAD is building at the school.

The technology center will help us in our studies and we will be able to use iPads and laptop and hence get updated about new technology in the world.

School will be open on the fourth of May and I am excited to go back to school because I want to learn more and gain more knowledge.

Today we were taught how to paint by a painter who was painting at the MAD guest house. MAD is teaching us different trades.

Below are my exam results for secondary school:

Class Term1 Term2 Term3 Rank1 Rank2 Rank3
Civics 58
History 86
Geography 84
Kiswahili 71
English 54
Physics 35
Chemistry 74
Biology 80
Math 56
6/19

Our grading scale: 81-100 =A, 61-80=B, 41- 60 =C, 31-40=D

Hey guys!

What a lovely day!  I am in Moshi today and it’s awesome!

Last week on Saturday I went to climb Mount Kilimanjaro, which is the highest mountain in Africa. It was very exiting!  Although it was a one day climb, I hope that eventually I will climb the whole mountain. A few weeks ago, I learned about life plan, and I got the chance to understand my values

Can I share with you my top two values and why I value them?

1.Spirituality because I believe in God in everything I do.

2.Honesty because I want to be honest.

How are you guys doing?  What are your values?  What mountain would you like to climb?  What do you like to do when you aren’t working?

Here is a picture of me!

I am the  the man of mystery! I like to keep you guessing. My favorite response is “Maybe!” I want to be a pilot in my future.

I have  graduated from  primary school and am heading into secondary school in the fall. I am really looking forward to furthering my education.
