Funding The College is funded, for its capital and recurrent expenditure, totally from students’ fees and from time to time from donations from the Parent-Teacher Associations fund-raising activities and other well-wishers. As a Trust, we attempt to set our fees at a break-even point and as such they are significantly less than those of comparable private schools.

The College greatly values the contributions and donations of its well-wishers and is deeply appreciative of any donation or contribution received however small. Contributions received over the years have been; full scholarships, partial scholarships, books, computers and software as well as sound advice of all kinds and the prayers and goodwill of many.

Enrolment & Staff Our student enrolment at the beginning of September 2006 year was 154. We have a Principal and 21 others on the teaching staff, either full-time or part-time. All of our teaching staff are certified for the subjects they teach including as university graduates or trained teachers or both.
