Anglican Students who have successfully completed their
primary education do sit for Diocesan Education Entry
Examinations and if they do well in that exam they find
places at this school. A large number of students are
selected by the Ministry of Education as this being a
Mission School has also a responsibility to save people of

work of bringing salvation to all mankind.

lions). Their hostels, uniforms and dinning tables are

ball, chess and many others after which they are awarded
marks. The house with a highest score is given a party at

On communication, there are plans to provide internet
connection for all members of staff as well as the students
but to make such a network it requires a lot of funds as a
result it will take time. However any communication to any
Head of department, member of staff or student can be
forwarded through this one line in my office. Theoretically
the students and some staff have learnt the internet but
they do not have access to it as there is only one facility
in the Headmaster's office.
