Every holiday we meet with all our kids in various classes. We check through their school performance, do topical seminars for them and encourage them to work hard at school. We also handle counseling at personal levels. This holiday we had class 7, 8 and High School kids. We are trusting that 27kids will graduate from primary and 5 from high school. We handled topics like discipline, how to prepare & pass in exams, Dealing with distractors at school and positive attitude.
Here in Kenya we have 3 terms/semesters in a year. The kids close school for the holidays every April, August and December. During this time kids who have performed very well are taken out for Breakfast in what we call “Daddy’s Honors’ List”. This holiday we had a couple of kids who qualified for Daddy’s breakfast. The kids were taken out, had a great breakfast and each kid was able to do shopping at the supermarket/Wal-Mart. Below are the photos.

There are also some very important things that we do each and every holiday with the kids. Bible study is one of the things that we give the first priority as the KCK family.
