The new La Salle Secondary School in Rumbek will initially offer a day program with the objective of building on the primary education received from the Loreto Sisters and local public schools. Classes for the first students of La Salle Secondary School start this April in the Loreto Sisters’ existing facilities. To ensure consistent and quality instruction, the school will provide advanced teacher training to 24 local secondary school teachers. Thanks to its holistic approach which integrates child rights, trauma and relevant education providing students with sought after skills, La Salle Secondary School represents a beacon of hope for youth and the community. The project aim to build and equip a brand-new school to host 320 pupils in the next three years on 48 hectares of land donated to the school by local chiefs.
