    OUR SCHOOL

    THE SCHOOL is a brain child of 3 founders

    It is based in Syokimau, 10 minutes from the airport
    We are pioneering a unique system where we integrate children from very humble backgrounds with those from more privileged ones.


    The fees charged go towards teachers’ salaries, children’s feeding program and meeting other basic needs within the school, thus making the school self sustainable.

    The school has 3 teacher and one care- taker and driver

    The school provides Education and opportunity to children at a personalized one - on - one approach.

    The use of trained teachers, field trips, out door, hands – on activities provides children with the opportunity for out of school exposure thus boosting their confidence and self esteem.

    Volunteers with artistic knowledge i.e drawing, painting, and other creative skill are welcome

    The school involves parents and community members as partners in the education process by utilizing their skills and knowledge.
