The primary school was the first part of the Revival Centre to be established. The first block was constructed in 2001 and provided for 30 children. Today the school provides for 350 children from nursery, P1 to P7 when the Primary Leaving examination is taken.
Class sizes may be up to 50 pupils per class. The age range may vary from class to class because many children have missed some years of education, so they start in the class that reflects their ability rather than their age.
The vast majority of children attending the primary school are day pupils from the local community, in addition there are around 60 primary age boarders and a number of primary age champions.
Getting an education is seen as the main route out of poverty and many families strive very hard to pay for their children to attend school. This is a big sacrifice because many families need their children to work to help the family make a living. Accordingly, children take their education very seriously and work hard. They are educated in English from day one which makes it possible for us to send text books donated by schools in the UK.
The primary school playground equipment is in constant need of repair and periodic replacement. Visitors often assist with this task!
