One of our larger schools, Likonde Primary School was renovated in 2015 thanks to the generous support of the St James’s Place Foundation and the Charles Hayward Foundation.  The pre-primary class opened in 2016 and is sponsored by Cymraeg Vending.

There are 58 pre-primary children and 482 primary children enrolled at the school.


What renovation means to the teachers at Likonde Primary School

“The guttering will help with this tippytap system but will solve other problems too – we had no water supply for nearly one year at this school and porridge for children has stopped.  Now this can re-start and continue for the rainy seasons.”  - Mrs Sofia Nyimbo, Head teacher

“My lessons are now well planned and make better use of time available – children are performing better and happy with their lessons”- Pre-primary teacher 

Likonde Primary School is linked with Christ the King RC Primary School in the UK.
