Hardest decision I have had to make todate!!
I had to announce to the Chabin grade 6 and 7 students and teachers my hardest decision to date. Our classroom sizes are to be 30 students and at the present time we have 89 students in grade 7 breaking it down into two classrooms still is pushing the envelope with regards to the regulations set by the Haitian government. The same will happen for next year from the Jacmel school and the Chabin school the number would be about the same. So the announcement today was to let them know we could only take the top 30 students with the highest average. This means that 56 students will not be able to attend grade 8 next year and about the same for grade 7. I told them to study hard so they can be one of the 30 and to pray to believe for a miracle to have a sponsor join with us to cover the cost it would be to accommodate the extra students. The costs would escalate as we would need extra classrooms built, extra high school teachers, uniforms, books, food and buses for transporting.
