EBUSAKAMI MIXED SECONDARY NOW A GIRLS’ HIGH SCHOOL.
On 21st of September, both M.Ps for Luanda and Emuhaya officially launched Ebusakami Girls High school to a fully fledged girls’ boarding. The school was previously a mixed secondary school. The function was attended by the District Commissioner, District Education Officer and other key stakeholders in the Education sector. The purpose of starting unisex boarding schools is to improve on performance. Most of the schools in the district are mixed day and have been registering poor performance over the years, resulting from inaccessibility to facilities, long distance to school and other domestic challenges facing students. The creation of unisex schools is to enhance performance. Among the schools implementing this policy is Esalwa Boys High School which has fully transformed to Boys’ boarding school:,Ebusiratsi Girls, Ebubayi Boys and Esibila secondary are in the process of facing out girls and boys respectively.
