Sylvester is in class 4 and is 10 years old. He has an older brother who is going to Newill Academy too, and 2 younger sisters that are not attending school yet. Sylvester and his siblings are raised by their grandmother as both of their parents died. The grandmother said they mostly live from donations. They can't pay the bus fees, so he and his brother wake up early so at 6 o'clock they can leave for school every morning. Sylvester is very good in Maths and after school, he does his homework, plays and helps his grandma. He wants to be a soldier and would like to have a bike, so he can ride to school.
