November 2017

As every year at this time of the year our students currently are writing their exams. WE WISH THEM ALL THE BEST! Thereafter they will enjoy their Summer/Xmas holidays.

 

Mr. Kilawe is back and Mr. Wittrodt performs a Computer Project

As in the recent years we celebrated our Graduation Party with the form IV students. In addition Mr. Kilawe came back to school after his 5 weeks visit in Germany. He had to tell a lot to us!

Also at beginning of october, in Germany the schools are now closed for autum holidays, Mr. Walter Wittrodt from our german friends of Kopernikusschule / Helfen macht Schule started his two weeks stay at our school. He´s visiting us for his first time. He will perform a scientific IT project using his own special small computers with very low energy consumption. The special computers of his project will only be temporary at KSS, as we will continue his project in Germany and other places to collect more data.

Filbert Kilawe in Germany

 

Our teacher Filbert Kilawe has been invited to visit our german partner schools Alexander von Humboldt Schule Viernheim and Kopernikusschule Freigericht / Helfen macht Schule. Here some of our german friends kindly welcome him at Frankfurt Airport.

 

 

Times are changing

Kishumundu Secondary School has a new Headmaster. His name is Fredrick Shayo (July 2017). He follows Mr. Kiwara, who directed our school for the last 31 (!) years. Since 2016 Mr. Shayo has been the Second Headmaster of KSS.

German Friend on Visit

Like in the recent years our friend Dr. Michael Bauer currently (july 2017) spends part of his summer vacation for a stay at our school. He is board member of Helfen macht Schule, a society associated to our german partner school Kopernikusschule, which supports our school and students since 2002.

Food Production

 

 

 

The students of our school produce part of the needed food by their own hands, e.g. maize for the breakfast. Currently we harvest a lot delicious eggplants from the school ground, which are used in the lunch meals. This is the outcome of a nice idea of our teacher Mr. Richard.

First Aid Station

 

 

Supported by our german friends of Helfen macht Schule we recently have been able to build a First Aid Section in a preexisting building at our school. Students will now find better conditions for initial treatment prior to a possibly needed visit at a Hospital or Medical Doctor if they get injured or feel sick.

Currently the furniture for the two new rooms is placed resp. installed.

Congratulation to the students of form IV (2016) and their teachers: YOU DID A GOOD JOB! In their exams the students performed quite well, see NECTA. Kishumundu Secondary School is nationwide now on position 471 of 3280 schools.

 

Fresh Appearance

Our school continues to improve. The roofs as well as some walls of our buildings were freshly painted. The whole school looks much better now and the roof sheets will resist better to corrosion.

Merry Christmas

Currently the school is closed for holidays until 9th of january 2017. Nevertheless the administration is working. We wish everybody Merry Christmas and a good start into the upcoming year 2017.

Dr. Michael Bauer on Visit

Like in the recent years our friend

Dr. Michael Bauer, board member of Helfen macht Schule, visited us for a few weeks and participated in school life in July/August. 

 

In addition he met with lots of friends that he has made during the recent years, e.g. former students of our school, which are now doing Advanced Level Education.

Get Light into your House

To get sun light into houses without windows you may use the water bottle light. The solar bottle light needs daylight and works without electricity. Visit http://www.instructables.com/id/How-to-build-a-SOLAR-BOTTLE-BULB/ for lighting examples and an instruction to build one by yourself. Interview with the inventor.

 

If you need light at night you may use a Moneymaker Solar Lamp. These really powerful and not too expensive lamps (see picture below) are purchased at the school. Please ask at the administration desk if you like to buy one.
