About

I am glad to be in Highway Academy because my parents are unable to pay for my school fees so that I can continue with my education. There is good education in Highway Academy because there are good teachers who encourage learning.

My life at Highway Academy has been excellent. My grades are on an upward trajectory; this brings much joy to me as I now have a grip on where I would like my life to head. I would like to be a lawyer when I grow up so I can defend the rights of those that are weak in society.

At Highway I have ample time with my teachers and my fellow students which has led to my academic success. I like visiting the school library and computer laboratory where I get to learn a lot of things.

I love playing Volley ball and reading novels.

I am on my last year of high school; I am working very hard in my studies and promise to make you proud.

Godwin.
Dear Godwin,

I hope you are enjoying school. What is your favorite subject and what are you learning?

My daughter, Katie, visited your school several years ago when she traveled to Kenya. She told me how wonderful the school is and how hard the students work. I was excited to learn that the school has been able to get more computers. I hope you get a chance to use them.

Good luck with your studies!

Carolyn
