Hi

Thank you for supporting me on the school fund. My name is John. This year has been a challenging one for me. Life at home has been difficult and I have not been able to keep up with my studies. I am approaching the end of my high school studies and I would like to thank you for standing with me through my high school journey. God bless you a lot and I look forward to achieving my goals.
My Form One experience has been amazing; I have learnt how to use a computer and I currently know pretty much about computers. Many thanks to the Wema community for giving me an opportunity to study, unlike my experience in Primary school I need not worry about school fees and my basic needs since you take care of all this.

I scored an A- in my end of year exams a grade of which I'm determined to improve on by focusing on the subjects I'm weak in; agriculture and geography. I would like to be a lawyer in future as I feel strong in my humanities and language subjects (English and Kiswahili).

During my free time I like reading novels available in our school library. We participate in debates which help boost our Command of English, public speaking skills and presentation.

I like playing football during our games sessions.

Thank you for your continued support.

He is still a little shy about actively participating in in class activities, but his peer interaction is active and good. He likes acting and participates whenever given a chance.
