Primary School


Iva Werner Primary School, Kibidula

The Iva Werner Primary School was built in 2004, with funding from Mrs. Iva Werner.  In 2007 it was officially registered as a Tanzanian English Medium Primary School. The school has grown steadily, and now has 105 students ranging from Preschool to Standard 7.  (Grades 1-7 are called Standards 1-7 here.)

Our school is a day school targeting staff children from Kibidula, and children from the nearby villages. The school strives to give good Christian education, and is based on the principles of the Seventh day Adventist church. The main goal of the school is to help the children getting to know Jesus as their personal Saviour. Our school is also what we call an “English Medium school.” This means that we mainly teach using the English language. This is useful for the children as all Secondary schools in Tanzania use English as the main language of instruction.

Current Activities:
We have just arrived back from a week-long camp with classes 4-7. The group was divided in two, and we had one camp in a village called Lwingulo, and another in Itindili in the village of Makongomi. The children had a great time, and the theme of both camps were “The Plan of Salvation.” We hope and pray that our presence didn’t just make an impact on us, but also on the villages we visited.

Needs:

School Industry:  The small school fees the children pay  do not cover all the costs of the school.  A school industry will help generate income to cover the remaining costs.
Teachers: We are looking for a volunteer English teacher.
Prayer: Please pray for our school.  The work of God goes forward when his people unite in prayer. Pray for the Holy Spirit to work on the heart of each individual child, and for the future of the school.
