SOS Children’s Villages Malawi is providing quality education through SOS Hermein Gmeiner primary schools in Mzuzu, Lilongwe, Blantyre and Ngabu programmes.
We ensure that our schools are secure, inclusive and offering real lifetime learning opportunities to all learners in our schools. We are committed to providing a stimulating and motivating learning environment, one that equips and prepares our learners for the 21st Century.
We believe that every learner in the school should enjoy their learning experience and feel proud of their achievements, no matter how little. To fulfil this, our school programmes offer both challenging and exciting learning opportunities for all learners for their academic, physical and social wellbeing. Through fostering a lifelong love of learning, we prepare every child so that they can make a positive contribution to the society in which they live.
The SOS HG schools continue to maintain excellent performance both in terms of pass rate and secondary selection rate and are among the trusted schools in different educational zones that they are located. This is attributed to continuous learner centred research and use of teaching methods that highly engage learners and continuous professional teacher development. The excellent leadership in these HG primary schools, motivates the teachers to remain committed to their tasks while supporting each learner’s particular needs in different ways such as offering remedial classes for some learners.
One outstanding aspect that highly contributes to high pass rate and high secondary selection rate is the availability of teaching and learning materials for both the teachers and learners. SOS HG primary schools heavily invests in this and ensures that teaching and learning resources for all teachers and learners are available at the school.
A variety of extracurricular activities like clubs and different sporting activities are offered to learners. This helps learners to nurture their talents as well as improve their health well-being and their social skills through different opportunities to interact freely with their peers.
We will be sharing specific updates about our schools in the next entries for you our valued readers.
