STUDENT SPONSORSHIP ANNOUNCEMENT
Hi there to all our current and new sponsors for the Student Sponsorship Program, what a horrific start to the school year it has been for us, the messiest yet.
Nearly a third of our students affected by not having final report cards. We use report cards to verify attendances at school, but this year we have a number a students absent from school for all sorts of reasons, some legitimate reasons, some not, but either way, teachers have not given report cards to those students.
Then we have greedy teachers with holding report cards until students either return books or pay bribes, what a pain in the bum the whole thing has been.
Next Saturday, the 29th of June is the cut off period for us and report cards, no report card by this date, no sponsorship this year. This could potentially cut good kids out of school as well as the kids who have not been so good.
We did this to give parents enough time to talk to teachers and hopefully work out some solutions for their children. We should of dropped all the students at the very start of the year, but that would of simply been unfair to children who have done nothing wrong and are the victims of dodgy teachers. Some of these students have high grades and are real achievers who are trying to get through a really crappy system that makes it hard to succeed.
If you are into prayer, pray into this with us. You don’t need to know names and details for prayer to work…
IN THE NAME OF JESUS, WE SPEAK BLESSING INTO JOHN 14:12’s STUDENT PROGRAM, WE REBUKE THE DEVIL AND WE SPEAK A RELEASE OF REPORTS CARDS TO STUDENTS WHO DESERVWE THEM.
REMOVE TEACHERS WHO ARE THERE FOR SELFISH GAIN AND WHO DO NOT HAVE THE STUDENTS BEST INTERESTS AT HEART.
CHANGE THE SYSTEM, SO IT WORKS FOR THE STUDENT.
Most of our Current and New sponsors have been very patient and understanding, as many of you have not received student pictures or even student information yet, but, by the 29th of this month all decisions will of been made, and EARLY IN THE FIRST WEEK OF JULY, ALL SPONSORS WILL HAVE STUDENTS AND UP TO DATE STUDENT LISTS.
Sincerest apologies for the delays, 2 more weeks and it will be all over.
Thank you – Ps Mark Pedder
