In most cases, students don’t look forward to taking tests. Due to extended school closure during the spring and another pause now effective until October, our 6th-grade girls were excited they had the chance to sit their national exam. The exam fell during the window of school being open for several weeks, before the government changed regulations and delayed starting for a month more.
Students and several teachers took a bus to Lubumbashi, where they underwent a health check before taking the test. We don’t know the results just yet, but we’re confident these brilliant young women performed beautifully. Well done, girls!
