Busega Scotland trustee and volunteer, Jenny Wallen, has arrived in Mayega to support English teaching in the primary school and children’s centre. A very experienced teacher, Jenny is working alongside staff and pupils to implement the reading schemes provide by one of her former schools, Lhanbryde Primary. The Mayega school has set up a library to house the books and the children are as keen as mustard to use the new facility. Good luck to Jenny in her endeavours.
The District Executive Director at Busega District Council, Anderson Kabuku, said that three of the top ten primary schools in Tanzania, in the latest Standard 7 examinations, were in his district. There are 169 districts in the country. Mayega’s performance has also improved. From 59th in the district in 2018 to 8th best this year. Nationally, the school’s improvement is from 6541 to 871. Congratulations to Ernest Damiano, head teacher, and the Mayega staff.
