Summer news from Kindwitwi – education

Salum’s  recent update also included information about education.

“We pleased to inform our friends who know of the Secondary School in Utete that the number of years that students can study has now been extended. Previously the highest level you could study up to was form four (graduating at 15 or 16 years of age) but now we also have forms five and six (so students can study up to the UK equivalent of A-Levels),” says Salum.

On the 19th of April this year the school celebrated its first Form Six graduation, where Abdullah Nguyu our Centre Manager, who is a school governor, was the guest of honour. These students then went on to sit their exams in May.

In the speech from the school they mentioned challenges that school faces like shortage of buildings, tables and chairs as well as different equipment and computers.
