Expansion of the St. Joseph School
in Butenga, Bukomansimbi Distrikt
The St. Joseph School Butenga is one of 16 secondary schools in the Bukomansimbi district and is of great importance for the region as there is no comparable school in the vicinity. For this reason, the school is to be developed into an educational centre for 700 pupils in the coming years, where young people from the region will receive a modern education. In addition to the expansion, the overall concept also includes teacher training measures, the expansion of the vocational training branch, the connection to the age of information and digitisation, a university-based competence training in entrepreneurship and further training courses.
2022 - Pilot project "Child friendly school
In recent years, St. Joseph School has already worked on the conversion from teacher-centred to modern student-centred teaching methods. The aim is now to deepen the pedagogical conversion. To this end, workshops on the topics of "child health", "children's rights" and a further workshop on "pupil-centred teaching" will be held in 2022.
