Great Lakes High School

Building the High School meets an important need in the area for a high-quality secondary education for pupils leaving primary schools around Kanungu.

Six years ago, it was just a field. Fundraising by Highgate School in London provided money to build two classrooms and the admin block so the school could open and first year group be recruited. Each year, the pupils move up the school and another year group joins, so more funds were needed for the next classroom, dormitory, laboratory, library, staff house etc.

The school now has all year groups and the first cohort have achieved their “A” levels, some moving on to Great Lakes University.

Teaching starts broadly but, for senior pupils, is focused on subjects which will be of most use to them, for employment, and to the community. This leads to a bias towards scientific subjects.

Creating a new school from scratch was quite a challenge. It is a great achievement which is already changing the lives of the boys and girls who spend their important teenage years there and will enable them as adults to have a real impact on the entire community.
