Speech excerpts delivered by the CHIEF OF WAYAMBA on the occassion of a handing over ceremony of the reconstructed school building of Wayamba R/C Primary.
"Today marks an important day in the history of my community Wayamba as we live to witness this historic moment. It is so historic in a sense that, we are gathered to celebrate the successful completion of the reconstructed Primary school block which is the first of its kind since the school structure was put up and am happy to be part of this joy.
Ladies and gentlemen, permit me to thank sincerely the the manager of the Wulugu organisation and the Clive and Sylvia Richards charity for seeing Wayamba community and for that matter our school worthy enough to be considered for this project. I most highly appreciate your effort of complimenting government effort in the area of infrastructure development.
Conducive learning environment play a critical role in ensuring effective teaching and learning in schools. Therefore, the renovation of our school block is a step in the right direction towards creating a conducive learning environment for our children. This I think could not have come at a better time than now most especially when we are battling with the menace of Covid 19 Pandemic which calls for hygiene and sanitation Practices in our day to day lives.
These beautiful structures will provide a safe school environment for learners. It will also give a better face lift to our school making the environment comfortable for both teachers and students. Ladies and gentlemen, as I conclude , permit me to assure you that I will laiase with the SMC and PTA to regularly monitor the school on regular basis and also ensure that the structure is in good shape to achieve the purpose for which it has been build for. Before I take my seat let me remind all of you that the best legacy one can give a child is education and all of us must be part giving education to our Young children who will be future leaders of tomorrow.
Once again thank you for making Wayamba a proud community."
Child of Hope - Uganda
We are delighted to let you know that the new secondary school, the construction of which you so generously supported, opened on February 3, 2020 in line with all other schools across Uganda for the start of the new academic year. Bad weather meant that some of the groundworks and external painting were not quite completed... but that did not deter all the students turning up on the first day! Of course, staff had already been hard at work the previous week with preparations for lesson plans and day-to-day administrative tasks to ensure all went smoothly on the first day.
It is the only secondary school in the area providing education to the children of the villages of Namabasa, Namatala, Kolonyi and Kabwangasi. Child of Hope will continue to provide totally free education, social, medical and welfare support for the poorest children from the slum.
We send you our sincerely grateful thanks for making all this possible.
Wulugu - Northern Ghana
Helping to build a primary school at Disiga, Northern Ghana 2019
The generous donation from Clive and Sylvia Richards Charity was a vital part of the project.
Before the new school was built, the pupils brought stools to sit on and carried them home each day. There were 2 blackboards one for each end, so one class faces one way, another the opposite and the one in the middle faces sideways.
The children, despite this, were keen to be there and are learning.
The community helped in every way possible. Village women carried soil, stones and water. Villagers gave the masons accommodation.
Disiga Primary opened in September 2019 and has made a substantial difference, particularly in enabling children to be taught during the rains.
It was officially handed over to Ghana Education service on. They were clear that their role was to ensure that the school runs well and is maintained properly.
They have recruited teachers and head and supplied books and some equipment.
Overall, the project went on smoothly and the enthusiasm is high. Most importantly, the children were so excited and looked forward to the completion and reopening of schools so they can have a real school at last.
