Stories of success when given the opportunity


I wanted to share with you all something that was shared by the counselling and teaching team at NHK; that I thought was quite amazing: Eleven (11) girls have 'graduated' from NHK school so far and are attending a regular school in the community (We refer to it as our sister school), and they are all still connected to NHK . Some come for counselling, all will be coming to do a group this month. But what really wowed me is that none of those 11 have dropped out and 8 or 9 of them are doing really well in school. They are in the top 5% !
