This year we began our Sewing Classes for the Secondary Schools. The program took awhile to begin because sewing machines are so valuable in Nigeria extra security needed to be added to the classroom. This is housed in the All-Girls School but classes from the other Secondary Schools do travel here for classes.
We run an advanced math class for students recommended by their Secondary School Principal recommended students on Saturday morning. We presently have 40 students enrolled in the class. We often place numerous students in the top 10 of math scores in Anambra State.

We began pir Sour early Secondary Schools Football (Soccer for the US) Tournament in the city 8 years ago. This was the first tournament in Awka for 26 years.
