I am now on holiday. I am so happy that I will soon go to visit my grandparents, brothers, friends and our neighbors in the village. I am also so glad I graduated from Primary school and passed the final National Exams! I will be going to secondary school next year and that makes me so happy too! I can’t wait to learn new things!
Sometime in the beginning of my holiday, we had some visitors from a nearby collage of agriculture. We also had students from International School Moshi who often came to help us academically (to prepare us for grade 8 next year) and play with us. They even invited us over to their school! It was so lovely there. We swam in their pool, played football and basketball, and had a picnic with them.
Bye for now. I wish you a wonderful Christmas and a happy new year.
In order to continue to their studies beyond standard 7( 7th grade) student in Tanzania need to pass the national Exam.

I have also been on a walking safari to a lake in Tanzania and Kenya with Salesforce, MAD’s assistants Frank and Grace, and Mama Theresa. It was my first time ever to leave my country! I can’t believe I went to Kenya for a few minutes!
Mama Theresa had a meeting with our grandparents on the 13th of September. My grandfather will be turning 70 soon. I will get to celebrate with him on the 23rd of September! I can’t wait!
At the Royal School, the school I will be attending for secondary school we are getting our first basketball court to play ball. I just got number 1 in races out of all the school. The races were in running! Juma got number 1 in football (soccer) at the school! I am doing well in English. I just got an 86%. My most difficult subject is Science, but I am getting tutoring to help me.
I have a cold right now. I’ve had it for a week and a half. Dada Pina at the guest house just made me ginger tea to help me. I hope I get better soon!

Thank you for giving me this opportunity to write. Right now I’m on holiday waiting for Easter day. I am so surprised about how I can dress (I don’t have to wear my school uniform!) and am having fun with other fellow students like me. I like staying with my older brothers and sisters. At school right now I am working hard. My favorite subjects are civics and kiswahili. Also my favorite friend is Halima. At school we are helping one another. Right now I am studying different things from others like finding new words in the dictionary. Thank you for listening to me.
