A quick update on Bizoha – Muhokya Campus:
To our supporters, sympathizers and enemies, Updates have not been coming in because of the repressive regime where there was blockage of social networks by the state during the time of Presidential & Parliamentary Elections which we just concluded. The blockage was now lifted.
School opened its doors on 22nd Feb 2016 with an attendance of 74 learners. Yesterday the number rose to 111 and more parents continue to register their children with us. We are looking at getting 200 pupils in the first two weeks.
The Scholastic Book donations have been received last evening and coming soon will be images of distributing them to individual beneficiaries and reserving some to be part of the school library.
The constructions at BIZOHA is moving on in finishing works, raising the fence to a level where there is total privacy and plans are underway extending the tap water within the fence area.
We are conducting classes from Nursery to Primary Six this time; an extra class will be added next year. Classroom images plus a pictorial of the learners coming soon.
We have recruited competent and experienced teachers who have served in several schools for years, we are confident that through active work and determination our learners are going to get balanced education that is free from dogma and indoctrination.
The school will also have humanism and vocational lessons.
We have 9 teachers so far to teach full time at the school plus 3 more who will teach Music, dance and drama, Carpentry and Tailoring.
A medic for the Andrea Vogt Health Clinic has been hired, also a School Bursar is in place to handle financial matters as in collections and expenditures at the school.
Attached are some pictures of the staff teachers@BIZOHA.
