100% pass rate!

Womba and her friends had big smiles on the day of their last exam  – these were well deserved when the results came out last week and we got 100% pass rate as a school. Huge congratulations to the teachers and students for all their hard work!



Hello! We are looking for some new people to sponsor some new students at the school for this January. Meet Agatha (below)- she is, once again our star in Maths during 2017 when she steam rolled her way through all the local and district Maths quiz competitions.

She did us so proud when she was even selected to the Provincial competition. She was actually competing against students a year ahead of her, being the only Grade 11 student on the team. She has such a bright hope for her future, doing well in all her subjects.

She is also a committed member of wider school life, being a keen poet and also a scriptwriter for the ‘Vinjeru TV’ documentary which a group of our Grade 11’s have put together to share about the life of the school. Agatha is only at the school because someone thought it was worth giving a child less fortunate than themselves a chance in life through our student bursary scheme. A big thank you goes to all our current sponsors!
Sponsoring a student costs £25 per month and you can sign up here: –vinjeruschooltrust.org/contact-us/get-involved/
