Sunday Primary School Hit by Shortage of Learning Space
for IDPs Children


By Rev William Majok Mayuang

Crowded classrooms in Wau CathedralThe E.C.S.S Diocese of Wau’s Sunday Primary School has hit by a shortage of learning space following the influx of thousands of IDPs at Good Shepherd cathedral.

Last week the Diocesan Administration directed the Head Teacher of Sunday Primary Rev Peter Aleu Kok to register the IDPs children for evening classes at the school. But the number of pupils registered has gone beyond the capacity of the school.

Over 300 pupils have been registered in class one. So class one pupils need at least six classrooms of 50 pupils each which is still above South Sudan education policy which requires that each class must have a maximum of 45 learners.

The Bishop of Wau Diocese Rt Rev Moses Deng Bol has appealed to the UN children's agency [UNICEF] to provide tents for emergency classrooms as the church looks for a long term solution to the problem.
