Ngorika in premier league

Since the appointment of Jonas Michael in September 2018, we are playing again in the premier league. Our Ngorika primary school finished in sixth place this year (out of 75 schools) in the district and for the first time in Ngorika school history the children achieved an average overall A grade. We are very prood of these achievements, especially when you consider that many of the children have an extremely challenging and vulnerable background.

Besides the standard curriculum we spend time at Ngorika on art, mucis and drama. With the significant amount that we received from two private sponsors we have been able to expand the instruments. We now have a drum set, keyboard and gitars, backed by speakers. Shorlty after an school band and chorus was formed, that gave a great music performance for Paul, Fred and Richard during their recent visit. What a joy!
