We have had some real successes and for the first time in the school's history, 7 children have gone on to other schools to take 'A' levels. 2 boys have already passed them. One of these boys has done an air-conditioning course and is working and another has joined the Police Force.
For 7 years we paid for extra lessons for children after school especially in those subjects where there was no teacher e.g. English. To remedy this problem, we opened a new school-room on the beach. This became so popular that this year we added another classroom.
We now have 2 school-rooms on the beach and 5 different teachers on different days of the week. Each weekday afternoon a teacher comes to teach English grammar, Spoken English, Maths, Science or History. The children are so enthusiastic that they turn up early to make sure they have a place in the class-room. We have noticed a real improvement in their English. Yesterday, the English Master told us that he believes that at least 4 of them will pass their 'o' levels. If they do, they will be the first children from the fishing village to do so!
