St. Jude's Primary School
St. Jude's primary school building is a building in-process and completing the project is the parish's highest priority. Recently, boy scouts from the U.K. spent three weeks in construction but the classrooms still aren't ready for students.
St. Jude's Preschool
The parish preschool currently includes thirty-one students. Once the primary school is completed and the government issues their primary school registration, they will begin to enroll first-graders. Their expected primary school population is 550 students.
Four Year Olds
Ana teaches the four-year-old children to count in English. They join in and count to ten! The children love to sing songs such as "Baby Jesus" and "Mango Green, Mango Yellow". The children also learn the English alphabet.
Five Year Olds
The five-year-old children in the preschool are taught by Edita. They continue to learn English and mathematics and are learning sentences. They also enjoy singing. Because animals are an important part of life here, they learn about domesticated and wild animals too.
The children's morning meal consists of porridge made from maize and beans and singing the song "Abarriti".
