Mushasha School, Ntungamo, Uganda
Mushasha Primary School in Ntungamo, Uganda was one of the first schools to benefit from Costa Foundation funding during 2008. Built originally for the 120 children in the village, it opened in September 2008 only to receive an additional 180 children from nearby villages keen to benefit from the new facilities. Additional classrooms were built in 2009 to cope with the increase in numbers.
As well as the classrooms; the school benefited from water harvesting tanks, teacher’s accommodation, an office for the Head Teacher and text books.
The school performance has been very good enhanced by the new text books and the professional attitude of the teachers. In 2012; the school boasted a 100% pass rate for all 26 students that sat their PLE exams with 7 students achieving division 1 scores and 19 scoring division 2.
