Back to School

Our kids are back to school for the new school year! On September 4th, all of our kids who attend primary and secondary school began their new school year. As the school year began, new supplies, including uniforms, backpacks, school shoes, books, and pens, were purchased. These things help ensure that our kids have what they need for a successful school year.

This year, we have thirty-one children attending school outside the center at Rising Academy. They returned to classes excited for the new school year and excited to see their friends from school. We are grateful that our children are able to receive an excellent education close to our center.

Our children at the center were also ready to return to school. For the second year, The Raining Season has been able to open its school to the surrounding community! We have been so fortunate to have a school onsite that so many of our children have attended. Our onsite school goes through grade six; however, each year, more and more students promote to grade seven and begin attending school outside the center. This has left smaller numbers of TRS kids attending school onsite and room to serve the community at an affordable price. Our enrollment is up from last year. Last year, we served one hundred twenty children. We are excited to share that this year, our school is serving thirty-two TRS kids and one hundred one children from the community, totaling one hundred thirty-three children!

We are thankful for an excellent and dependable team of teachers. They have linked arms with us for many years. They provide a quality education that prepares our young children to move on to secondary schools and beyond. We know how important an excellent education is in impacting our children's and the children of the surrounding community's future success. Over the past year, our team has worked to ensure our school will grow to be one of the top-performing schools in Sierra Leone. Our teachers continue to learn and grow through team members with experience in teaching, our leadership staff, and outside sources within the Freetown community.

Finally, our older students who took the West Africa Senior School Certificate Examination in May are still awaiting their results. If they pass, they will be able to apply to University. Our young adults who are enrolled in University are still on break until later this year. However, our young adults who are not attending classes this month have been filling their days with some extracurricular classes.

We are proud of our kids and their dedication to their studies and excitement for the new school year. Education is a stepping stone in helping our kids achieve their dreams of becoming doctors, accountants, teachers, and lawyers. Join us in praying for our teachers and children as they enter a new school year.

Many blessings,

The Raining Season
