Mustard Seed Academy:  The Latest from Lukaya 

Exams are over for both P-7s and S-4s. Students have gone home and are awaiting their results, which are expected in early July. We anticipate history to repeat itself with MSA students being among the best in the district.

Currently, in Secondary, all three levels, S-1, S-2, and S-3, are back in school with a lot of excitement for joining the boarding section. Students and their parents expressed joy and gratitude to the staff. On campus, many opportunities for extra help from teachers and small study groups are possible. Plus, living conditions at school are much better than in the typical home where our children stay.

Primary students in grades 4, 5, and 6 are back in school. Students in P-6 are boarding, while fourth and fifth graders come from their homes. First through third graders are scheduled to return to school in June. We are still waiting for word about the nursery schools reopening.

The new school year will begin in August with all classes being allowed to return to campus. The government has published a three-year school calendar, which will get things back on track in 2024. In order to do this, all terms and school breaks are shortened. 

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you, very much!

Every teacher asked me to extend appreciation to you. They are grateful for:

  • Great working conditions
  • Cooperative colleagues
  • Salaries-promptly paid
  • Support for the whole Mustard Seed community during Covid 19
  • Pride in Mustard Seed Academy

As you listen to Teacher Bushira, try to imagine being in Lukaya, Uganda, at Mustard Seed Primary School and sense the miracle you helped make possible. Enjoy!
