Salvation Way Junior Academy

Building has started on the next phase of the school in Bombo. We now have 155 pupils in 6 classes from Baby class to Primary 3 and we are bursting at the seams!

The new block will provide five additional classrooms enabling the classes currently using the hall to have their own rooms. This building will become the Primary wing of the school for classes P1 to P5 and the original school building will be designated for the pre-school classes (Baby, Middle and Top). The hall, which has been subdivided this year to provide extra classrooms will be returned to a single space and used for assemblies, dance, drama lessons and lunch.


The foundations have been laid

The school opened in February 2015 and now, 2 years later we have over 100 children, everyone sponsored, being educated here.

It was formerly known as the Salvation Way Primary School, but we were told that until we have all classes available it will have to be known as a Junior Academy.

 

 

Here are some photographs of our journey so far…

March 2015
The school is now open with 80 children from local poor families, each one sponsored by someone in England,
and each receiving a quality education and a hot meal each day.
November 2013

We have profiled children from
very poor families in the area
around the school. These will form
the first intake when the school opens.

Could you sponsor
a little one like these, who otherwise
would have no hope of an education… and future?

They are now sponsored and in
school. Their lives have changed
beyond their wildest dreams.
