Development of the Schools in the Diocese of Wau:

There are five Basic Primary Schools among the forty-Eight primary schools which are in concrete buildings such as the Sunday Basic primary school which is in the Centre of the Diocese, Piantok Basic Primary School in Marial Wau Archdeaconry, Tharkueng Basic Primary School which is also in Marial Wau Archdeaconry, Linda Basic Primary School in Gogrial East Archdeaconry and Nyieth Basic Primary School in Akhon .

 

Schools With Concrete Buildings and Their Activities :

As part of it's development, the Sunday Basic primary school has now introduced a Computer Practices lesson especially for primary level Seven and Eight to make pupils aware of the modern technology. More over the School Administration is now doing writing in order to operate Fans in Classes.

There are sixteen classrooms in concrete buildings, five offices for the teachers in which there are eighteenth seats inside these offices, one store, six latrines and a Kitchen.

Pantok Basic Primary School has four classrooms in concrete buildings, one office, a store, and three latrines. 

Linda Basic Primary School has eight classrooms in concrete buildings and four offices, a store, seven latrines and a kitchen.

Tharkueng Basic Primary School has four classrooms, two offices, a store, four latrines and a kitchen.

Therefore, there are about forty- three Schools which are being operating in Tukuls or still under trees.

 

School Challenges for the E.C.S. Diocese of Wau.

  • Lack of enough people trained to be teachers for the welfare and smooth running of schools.
  • Lack of water resources. i.e. Sunday Basic Primary School has one hand pump but it has got spoiled and currently the school relies on water being bought in to school.
  • Inadequate textbooks in relation to the number of children.
  • Lack of Staff dining halls and good kitchen facilities for some schools.
  • Lack of seating benches in many schools under Wau Diocese control.
  • Lack of projects from the Diocese to build perminent new school buildings. Thirty-Six schools are working in Tukuls which must be regularly rebuilt.
  • Lack of school feeding for pupils. Some schools start operating from 7:30am - 2:00pm. Pupils leave to eat before the end the period.
  • Lack of sport materials for schools.
  • Lack of standard pupils attendence registers used for the class roll calls.
