2014 Form 4s Pass Exams with Flying Colours

2014 Form 4s Pass Exams with Flying Colours

2014 was a big year for our Form 4 students. They spent it applying themselves to studies that ranged from history to chemistry to biology. Our students began the New Year with feelings of anticipation as they eagerly awaited their exam results to see if all of their hard work paid off. Finally, the results are here! And happily, the answer is a resounding “yes”!

Overall our 126 Form 4 students received stellar results, placing St Jude’s 3rd in the region and 24th in all of Tanzania. Over half of the students achieved a Distinction, the highest possible grade, and 99% of the class achieved a Merit (the second highest grade) or above.

The results indicate our students show particular aptitude for communication, with the class ranking 2nd in the region for Kiswahili. They are also budding scientists and historians, achieving a regional ranking of 2nd in Biology and 3rd in History.

These results are fantastic for all of our students and their teachers who have worked so hard to guide each of them throughout the year. The students are very proud of their achievements, deservedly so, and begin Form 5 with a renewed confidence and excitement for the year ahead.

To make sure parcels arrive and incur no expenses for the school

  • Please do NOT register or insure any mail as it costs the school at least USD $25 in taxes at our end.
  • Mark all parcels as being “second-hand goods” or “personal gifts”.
  • Ensure the description of goods written on the parcel matches the actual items inside as customs and postal staff frequently inspect contents of parcels.
  • Please label all parcels clearly with the first and last name of the recipient and your full name.
  • Please put the value of the package at no more than US$10 (the lower the better).
  • Ensure that your parcel is LESS THAN 2KG. We have been advised that parcels less than 2KG are technically tax-free regardless of content, but this is not guaranteed by all postal workers.
 

Tax-free items include books, personal goods and anything that is not new. Used goods, used clothes, etc…(please remove labels and packaging from all items before sending them)

Keep in mind that parcels sent by airmail can take up to four months to get here (sea mail is even longer – often 12+ months!), so don’t worry if it takes a while for us to let you know the parcel has arrived.
