Project background Essong’olo Secondary School was established in 1994 by the local community and it is mixed for boys and girls and has a population of 350 students from form one four. The School is two streamed with a single large block of construction made up of eight classrooms, a staff room, Principal’s office, accounts Clerk office and a reception room that double as copy typist room. The School has an extension which acts as a library cum laboratory and Deputy Head teacher’s office. The School has three laboratories; the dining hall is under construction courtesy of funds from the Constituency Development Fund and there are plans to construct dormitory as the School intends to expand into a boarding School. It is important to note the big efforts made by former volunteer to this project Mr. Chris The School occupies a land surface of 5 acres and has a teaching staff of ten teachers, six Government employed and four and employed by the School Board of Governors The School is growing rapidly due to the large area and the increased enrolment at Primary Schools within the division and hence the growing demand among students for high School education The institution acts as a focal point for the community mobilization in relation to community development of the area. Youths are very desperate and the fact that climatic situation is a hindrance to meaningful agricultural activities also deters their attention from positive contribution to both community and national level.
