Leading for Transformation: School Visits - Day 2

Blog Archives:

Today we headed north to visit 3 school communities.  First stop was Hoya Secondary and Primary.  We sat in a mathematics 12 class: the students were attentive and engaged in complex learning.  The facilities at Hoya Secondary are very nice with a relatively new classroom block, including offices and a spacious staffroom.  A quick stop to say “hi” to the Hoya Primary leaders, and we were on our way. 

We journeyed to Emusa Secondary and Primary.  The secondary school has the same wonderful main building as Hoya.  A quick walk across the field and we were at the primary school where we were delighted to see the Throughlines displayed in the courtyard on pieces of wood attached to trees.  Next, a couple of songs by the school choir followed by checking out the school’s piggery: 22 pigs as an income generating activity for the school.

Last stop was Chasefu, which is one of the oldest Presbyterian communities in Zambia and is also home to the denomination’s seminary.  We walked through the primary classrooms, the seminary library and the church (where a class was being held).  We also saw the foundation and bricks awaiting the HANDS team that is arriving next week where they will partner with the local community in building a new classroom block.

Then a long and bumpy ride back to Lundazi, where we will spend our last night before heading to South Luangwa Game Park for a couple of days of safari-ing.
