One family's journey crossing cultures in pursuit of the kingdom of God

Transition to Grade 12

“I have to go yell at some grade 11 students,” the other teacher called out as she left my room abruptly one morning. As she did so, five or six of my grade 12 students looked alarmed.

“What did we do?” asked one with concern in her voice. I had to remind them that they were not in grade 11 any more and they weren’t in trouble!

There were several comical, yet serious moments during that first week of school during which it sunk in for some of them that they were now in their final year of high school, the oldest and “wisest” group of students in the school who were getting ready to face the “real” world, heading off to university studies, military service, and jobs.
