Exciting plans are underway to start a secondary school with a vocational skills program called Heritage Christian High School.
Pastor Moses and Flavia have had the vision for this project for quite some time, and the need has become more important in recent years as more children have continued to graduate from primary school. The aim is to provide high school education onsite rather than having to send increasing numbers of students to other schools to continue their education.
A timeframe for completion is yet to be announced, but the centre has already started making bricks in preparation for construction of the buildings.
As part of their education in this new high school, students will receive training in various practical skills that will help them to gain employment in the future, such as welding, tailoring, bricklaying, carpentry, home economics, hair dressing and nursery teaching.
During the school break, Heritage has been conducting trial high school classes. Flavia is pictured here teaching one of the senior classes, and below is a photo of some students participating in a welding class.
