Heritage Christian High School has been officially launched for four weeks! It has been off to an amazing start, with classes set up for all of our 40 secondary students.
Here are a few of the students looking smart in their brand new uniforms.
The school has started with nine secondary teachers, offering the usual subjects from the national curriculum such as English, Maths, Chemistry, Physics, Biology, History, Geography, Commerce, Information Technology, and Agriculture. The students will also be able to choose practical vocational skills to learn such as tailoring, welding, carpentry, electrical, motor vehicle mechanics, and hairdressing.
As the classrooms are yet to be built, some of the primary classes have been temporarily shifted around to accommodate the extra secondary classes, and some classes are being held outside under the trees.
To properly set up the high school, we will be fundraising to build three new classrooms and supply desks, chairs and all required classroom materials. Ongoing support will be needed to maintain the school and continue paying the teachers' salaries.
