For all those who sponsor students with us, you should receive your updated students photos and some basic information on your student/s in the next day or so.
We apologise for the delay. School has started unusually late this year, with most students going back to school tomorrow, but with some not starting until July, usually students would start in May. This has meant that a number of children who went to the province over the holidays have only just come back to Baseco this weekend, which means we couldn’t get photos until now and in some cases we couldn’t even ascertain if that child is even going to continue in school this year. There is not much we could do about this delay except to wait until school starts, which we have done.
There has been a big change in the school system this year, which has contributed to the delay, but that we think will be very beneficial for the students.
Previously High School has only been 4 years, but this year the country has added a 5th and 6th year, which is part High School and part College. It gives the students who are continuing in school the ability to make choices about courses which will then better prepare them for any possible College Course that they might go on to do in the future.
We appreciate your patience with us, all photos will be emailed out today and tomorrow.
God bless you and thank you for your support.
Mark and Christine Pedder
