Namwendwa Primary School

namwendwa-primary-signNumber of pupils :  760 (386 boys & 374 girls)

School Motto :  The early bird catches the worm

Founded in the 1960s, Namwendwa is one of the oldest primary schools in the district. Namwendwa's location, on the junction of two major roads and surrounded by an area of fertile agricultural land, has resulted in rapid population growth in the last decade. The school itself has grown from only 300 pupils in the 1990s to over 700 pupils today. This increased enrolment put a lot of pressure on the school's resources.  As a result, during 2014 and 2019 HvSMF completed many new projects.

The school now has 12 classrooms , with an average of 76 pupils per classroom.  All the teachers now live on site which means they have more time for preparing and marking lessons.  Hopefully, following the 2019 donations, the school will be able to improve their academic results.

This is the school that Mr Samanya Godfrey, the retired head teacher at Bupadhengo Primary, went to as a boy and had his lessons under the mango trees.  The majority of the pupils feed into Namwendwa St Peter’s Secondary School and Nalango Secondary School, both supported by HvSMF.
