Recently I had the joy of visiting my old friends John and Alex Kpikpi in Ghana. John brings apostolic oversight to Newfrontiers churches in seven nations in West Africa, most of which he has planted. As well as giving some training in various administration matters to the church and school staffs, and some one-to-one mentoring, I offered to make a new video of their school to replace the one I made in 2008.
New Nation School was founded over ten years ago and now numbers over 500 students from 3-18 years. The children are trained in an atmosphere of unconditional love and reach high standards. In the recent International GCSE exams they attained an amazing 99% pass rate including the top mark in the whole of Ghana for mathematics. In A levels they achieved 88%. 85% of A level students go on to university in Ghana or abroad.
I was struck by the broad ranging curriculum, the diversity of extra-curricular subjects and the general happiness of the children. The school is a credit to the dedicated staff lead by John and Alex. You can watch the video by clicking on the picture.
