There are a lot of health issues in the community of Linda due to AID’s and poverty in the compound. We receive assistance from Eye Care Zambia, an Irish NGO specialists in eye care and the provision of glasses. Neri Clinics (another Irish NGO) provides community health care at a nearby clinic.
School equipment is on our list of priorities. We are aiming to create modern study environment by introducing a modern computer lab and two science labs for our grade 7 to grade 9 students. Plus an elearning programme provided by Edulution, supplements the teaching of maths in a secure and fun environment using coaches, tablets linked to the Khan Academy and advanced analytical software .
Up scaling teachers qualifications and teaching techniques is essential for the Zambian students to advance in a modern world. Exchange of ideas and teaching methods with Irish student teachers helps accelerate the process.
School is the centre of the community where the family is the building block. Helping families in need is as important as building the school. The community centre within the school complex facilitates community meetings and activities. The Community School ethos provides educational support to venerable children and welcomes back children who have left school early due to pregnancy or other family commitments.
