Samuel did not want to go to school.  He was teased regularly all through grades 1-3.  He cried to be allowed to stay home, and his grades reflected his difficulties.

Samuel had begun his schooling at a community school which was not part of PCSB.  By the time he was in grade 3, he had been bullied a lot, and his grades were bad.  Samuel’s aunt encouraged his parents to look into registering him at New Life Presbyterian School instead.  Samuel was eager to try this new school, so they transferred him to New Life beginning in grade 4. 

He began his new school timid, afraid to speak or do much, and very hesitant to play or interact with his classmates.  He was afraid to make friends, despite the encouragement of his family.  But New Life proved to be “new life” for him.  Through the love of his teachers, the kindness of the students, and the opportunity to praise God openly together, Samuel was transformed.  His spiritual life blossomed, his motivation for learning soared, and he found friends.  Now he is about to enter grade 6, and he is set to flourish in high school.

Samuel loves the fact that the students at New Life are encouraged to praise God together. This has helped him to be motivated in his learning, and to dare to make new friends.  “Thank you” says Samuel’s mother Maria. “I know that God will continue to guard and guide him.  I am sure that everything Samuel has learned through these years will never be forgotten.”
