Our students have continued to impress academically, with outstanding results across the campuses in recent national exams. 

It’s been another successful year for our Grade 4 students, this year ranking first in the district, second in our region and in the top .04% of the entire nation. 87.6% of the students achieved the top grade in the difficult exams.

In 2016 our Grade 4 students also achieved impressive results, ranking first in the district and third in the region.

George Stephen, our Primary Headmaster, could barely contain his enthusiasm. 

“Our school managed to maintain the first position in two consecutive years in the district, which is not easy with the competition from the Arusha municipal schools,” he said. “We did it again! This performance has made me feel very successful both as a teacher and the leader of the school.” 

Not to be outdone, our high school students have also achieved some stellar results. 

Exams aced: Our Form 2 students aced their exams, with 96% achieving the top possible mark.

Our Form 2 students aced their exams, with 96% achieving the top possible mark. This included 133 students topping English, and 121 for biology. 

Acting secondary headmaster Adam Myombe was very proud of the students and teachers who achieved the results.  

“I am very proud of what we have achieved with my team and students. I always feel honoured to be making a difference as part of the St Jude’s family,” he said. “Academic success is not just determined by how bright a student is, it is about the hard work they put in to achieve their goals”. 

These results continue the St Jude’s tradition of impressive academic success. We can’t wait to see what the rest of 2017 holds for our students!

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.
