There are over a 1000 children who attend the school and they come from the local farming area which includes a squatter camp.
There are 145 pupils in the Early Childhood development classes and they have 2 teachers.
There are approximately 45 pupils in each class, with 1 teacher. There are three classes in each grade 1-7, but the children are not streamed by ability.
Our school is regularly involved in projects that provide practical and financial support to St Joseph's Chishawasha.
Members of our staff have previously visited St Joseph's, they took educational resources, clothing, sports kits, books, jigsaws and ICT software. Our pupils also made videos showing a typical day in the life of st Joseph's Hurst Green to share with the pupils in Zimbabwe.
At present we are working to help fund the implementation of a Literacy Project in collaboration with 'Happy Readers'.
