Report about selection of new students

Process

Process began in January 2019 with visit to different local schools of the provinces of Kep, Kampot and Takeo.

The 12th grade students of Kep Province were invited in May 2019 to visit Don Bosco Kep.

There was an attempt to travel to Ratanakiri, Mondolkiri, Stung Treng and Kroche, but it could not be done.

Kep and Kampot radiostations passed annoucements in the month og August. Don Bosco Kep past pupils were requested to promote the selection of new students through social networks, especially Facebook.

Don Bosco Kep students of the first year (2018-2020), were motivated to invite youth to apply. We offered a discount in monthy fees to those who could bring a new student.

There are two weeks of selection: a) August 26-30 (before the results of the National Exam) & b) September 23-27 (after results of National Exam).
