School is in Session!

Classes have begun at the PLCC School in Ongata Rongai. In the October issue of The Messenger, we highlighted the new school building and innovative teaching style to be used in the classroom of the PLCC school. The school opened its first term in January and classes are now successfully running using the innovative MultiGradeMultiLevel (MGML) Methodology.

Nine of PLCC’s girls are attending the school. The students selected for the school are girls who had difficulties succeeding and progressing in the Kenyan schools. The smaller class size, as well as the MGML style have allowed the girls to receive more specialized teacher instruction at a more adaptable learning pace in a supportive learning environment.

Although the school is only 2 months old, the teachers are already seeing progress in the students. The girls are more comfortable and secure in the familiar setting of PLCC, they are receiving more assistance and support from teachers, and they are able to work at their own pace and grade level. For all of these reasons, the teachers are seeing development and progress in the students’ learning.

We ask you to join us in praying for the students and teachers of the school. As the school continues to develop and grow, we pray that the students will learn and progress, that the teachers will continue to enrich the lives of the students and feel gratified in their profession, and that all the girls of PLCC will experience happiness and success while living and learning at PLCC.
