We can hardly believe it. The time has come for our 8th grade students to leave campus and begin high school. They’ve been working hard this school term to prepare for their K.C.P.E. exam (Kenya Certificate of Primary Education) they will take next week.

This is a national test for all 8th grade students and a pretty big deal in Kenya. So, our staff put together a time of prayer and worship to encourage our students before the exam.

It’s a tradition in Kenya to present 8th grade students with a “success card” filled with notes of encouragement before they take their K.C.P.E. Each 8th grade student at Canopy Life was presented a card from our teachers and staff. These cards are meant to remind them that they are SO loved and cherished by their Canopy Life family.

Even our fourth graders joined in to show their support!

Thank you for your prayers for our students as they prepare for and take their K.C.P.E. next week!
