School update:

The exam results for 2014 were a spectacular improvement on 2013.  The mean score was 251 up from 202 last year.  However the number of students taking the exam was much reduced (6 boys and 9 girls) .  There may be an emerging pattern of boys dropping out which would be a matter of concern.

In this year’s Standard 8  there are 44 students.  Standard 7 is 60 and Standard 1 is 66.

The school looked in good condition.  The trees are thriving and the vegetable garden is surviving.

The borehole is working well so the school has running water.

New classrooms / library

The contractor, Kandu, is working very hard on these and promises to be finished in 3 weeks.  The plan is to designate one of the classrooms as a library / computer room. They will create a resource centre for the school and the community by putting the government’s laptops in with  the library books.  The school will be in the first phase of the laptop programme.  2 teachers have been identified for training and a large steel cabinet for 50 laptops is being constructed.

Polytechnic project

The school has a vision to develop a polytechnic centre on its compound.  There is plenty of land for this and a real need to give students who fail to get to secondary school a skill for life.

New Proposals

Fire extinguishers and an IT technician / librarian.  These will be prepared and sent to Stephen and Lut.
