It was Sponsors Day at MfA last week. Many of the Students sponsors from around Ndola and Zambia came to MfA to find out about term 1 and 2 results and the work that the students are undertaking. Many thanks for your support and making the time to come.
MfA has received the sad news that after a long illness one of our most enthusiastic and committed supporters, Ken Murfitt, has passed away. In 2002 Ken was the senior member of a group that visited us from Milford, Surrey to work with our Zambian team and build our first classrooms. Since then, Ken and his wife Phyl have always sponsored the education of a current student - eight so far. It was Ken’s wish that the people who attended his memorial service should have an opportunity to make donations to MfA and we have received a generous gift in his memory. All of us at MfA thank God for Ken Murfitt.
One more week of Term 2 left! Mock exams over and completing the final lessons of the term, with English lesson and CV preparation going on. Year two students are getting ready to head off to industrial placements. Any extra time that is spare the students are volunteering in the workshop and helping around the college. Filling up the practical log books- well done.
Introducing our wonderful Zambian Trustees at MfAZ.
It is mock exam time for the second year students. This should give them and the academic staff a good indication of each student's level of preparation for the final exams in December. Term two is coming to an end and second year students are getting ready to head off on industrial placements in workshops and garages around Ndola and Lusaka.
Desmond our Head Gardener and Foundations for Farming teacher has reached a 16 year milestone working at MfA! He continues to keep the compound beautiful and a great place to work. He also adds to the life skills of each student with farming teaching. Many thanks for your long service and well done.
Another Monday, another busy day at MfA!
