THE Tambul Christian Academy, an Accelerated Christian Education (ACE) agency, is open to all for enrolment next year, its principal says.
Joseph Kakaru said the school was recognised and registered by the Education Department after 22 years when it taught American-designed curriculums.
Kakaru said the allowed Grade 8 dropouts from other schools to repeat the grade at the school.
“Since this school was established in 1994, we struggled to send our kids to continue into high schools in this country,” he said.
“Most of our students who finished Grade 9 and 10 here continued their Grade 11 and 12 in America.
“Our students did not sit for examinations set by the Education Department of this country.
“Those who tried to get into high schools were told to repeat the grades because they sat for an exam not recognised in this country.
“We are very proud because this year eight of our students in Grade 8 were allowed to sit for the national exams. They became the pioneer graduates.
“From the bottom of our heart, we thank the Education Department for recognising our school under this country’s system
“That is the reason why I say Tambul Christian Academy is now open to all children from Tambul, Western Highlands, and others from around the country.”
Kakaru announced that school fees for next year were K1200 for day students and K2300 for boarding students. He said applications for new intakes for 2017 were available and he could be contacted for assistance.
He said all students should bring 80 per cent of their school fees during registration which starts on Feb 2.
