Fuego's exam results impress in Guatemala

The mid-year exam results in Itzapa continue to impress, with Fuego's (Grade 1) morning lot averaging 10% higher into the 80's. Merlin, Maycol, Melvin, Delmy and Marvin all averaged in the 90's. Led by Priti, volunteers Kristen and until recently Rebecca, are doing fantastic work.

In the afternoon the average continued in the high 80's; Marleni a clean sweep of 100s and David grabbing a couple of 100's and a 98 and Aura in the 90's. What makes these results even sweeter is that this is the first year where the national school has recognised that our work with Zunil (kinder) is good enough to allow immediate entry in Grade 1, which Fuego is.
