This past year has been a challenging year to all of us in many different ways and Daylight School is no exception. Classes have been delayed and staff has worked diligently to update the health and safety precautions due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We’ve added many hand washing stations, health monitoring and sanitizing procedures. And while this has been complicated at times, there have also been many wonderful and inspirational moments at Daylight School!
Thanks to all of your amazing generosity, we have been able to paint our school buildings, purchase a new printer for the school office, provide needed hand washing stations and cleaning supplies, complete the building of our kitchen and install 3 new locally hand made stoves, and are in the process of purchasing two large tents to provide shade for outdoor learning.
We continue to provide a caring staff, healthy meals, clothing, shelter, and an excellent education! We have just learned that our 8th grade students had another incredible year on their national exams despite the pandemic, and their scores are ranked 4th highest out of 600 schools in Pokot County! WE ARE SO PROUD OF OUR STUDENTS!
Our staff has continued to work through this difficult year to keep the school running to support those students who are boarding at the school, as well as the 8th graders who continued to safely study through the year. They have also been a great support to the families of our students and the local community.
We wish you all peace, health and joy this holiday season and a safe and happy new year!
