Namavundu Primary School

Number of pupils : 704 (351 boys & 353girls)

School Motto : The fear of the Lord is wisdom

School Mission: To promote morally upright pupils with basic education.

Namavundu Primary School is situated in a remote and particularly poor part of Namayingo District. In 2005 the school was little more than a grass thatched hut in which around 200 children had their lessons sitting on the dusty ground, or under the shade of a nearby tree. The majority of the children suffered from the parasite jiggers which makes them feel ill and requires expensive drugs.  As a result of the poor conditions, most parents were not sending their children to school.

Since 2018 Esther Ochola has been head teacher of this government funded school, which means the teachers are posted and paid for by the government. She is an intelligent and hard working lady who has the support of the community, PTA and SMC. We hope that this school continues to support the very poor children who live nearby and give them an opportunity to learn in a structured environment.
