We have just received the following news update from Jacob Amadi, headmaster of Kings Kid Academy. For more information about this school, please see our Kings Kid Academy page.

"Warm and pleasant greetings from Kings Kid Academy, The Gambia.

We write to inform you that we have resumed school today the 17th September 2007 after a long holiday to begin the 2007//2008 academic session. The session started on a new note, the children were very happy to come back to school and as usual learning has started in earnest. This session also witness the influx of new parents trying to register their children in our school, In fact almost all the classes witness new intake.

This is as a result of the academic performance of our school children. Their social and civilized interaction while on holidays with other children as well as adults in the community distinguishes them, thus making them stand out in the midst of other kids.

In other to maintain as well as improve on this standard of which we are known for in the community, the school has decided to employ the services of extra 4 qualified teachers. 2 of these are university graduates, one majors in English language while the other majors in Mathematics, the remaining 2 qualified as early 'childhood educators' from the Gambian College. We believe that these new teachers will make a significant impact in the overall academic improvement of the children.

Our willingness to employ at this time these new set of qualified staff in spite of the school's poor financial status demonstrates our commitment and readiness to make sacrifices in other to achieve any needed result.

The challenges therefore before everyone of us now is to endeavour in the spirit of partnership in ensuring that our new class room block under construction is completed on time so as to create enough space and a conducive learning environment for the children, thereby meeting the challenges of a growing school.

We want to use this medium to sincerely thank everyone of you, your families, friends and supporters who have at one time or the other supported and encouraged us either through personal visits to our school here in the Gambia, or through cash and educational material donations. We believe in you and do hope that you will continue to generate awareness and work for the completion of the classroom block.

Finally, we want to say thank you for standing with us in providing quality and affordable education to the Gambia child."
