Emmanuel Kidali; the Headteacher, who was very delighted with the results, appreciated the team who worked hard to ensure the impressive work was done. He also outlined several challenges the school is experiencing. Lack of dormitories for both boys and girls that has undermined the school’s efforts to improve in performance. According to Kidali, the school urgently needs a girls’ dormitory from well-wishers to curb girls drop out which is a threat to girl-education.

Water shortage was also noted, since the school uses rain water harvested and stored in the 3 small tanks that dry up after rainy season due to high demand from the pupils and teachers. School renovation was the other flout according to the head teacher. The classes are in bad shape and leaking during rainy season. It urgently needs immediate renovation to provide a conducive classroom atmosphere for learning.
