At the beginning of 2012 we opened the schools doors planning to have a class of 15-20 children and to grow the school by adding a class each year until 2014 when we would have a bustling school of 60 children.
In order to achieve this the land had to be given a special consent by the city council to be used as a place of instruction. Unfortunately this took just over a year to complete and our first class has been limited to 6 children for the first half of the year. Fantastic news is that at the end of July we were finally given consent to use the land for up to 60 children. We are very excited and very thankful to God for answered prayers.
In the meantime our founding 6 children have been having a wonderful six months settling into school routine, enjoying learning exciting new things and experiencing life outside school through outings and visits.
