Teachers and Staff

Most of our teachers come from the local villages, and work with dedication and passion. Not many had had the chance to obtain formal teaching qualifications. In 2016, Tukongote sent 9 teachers to teacher training college in Livingstone for 3 years.

Three times a year, during school holidays, the teachers spent a month in town at college, returning in term time to teach and complete their assignments. A large portion of this training was generously sponsored by Texel Foundation.

The team is lead and guided by a head teacher, administrator and school secretary. Each class has 2 full time teachers, and we have dedicated literacy, computer and arts & crafts teachers.

Our cooks provide food at midmorning break and lunchtime for pupils and staff. Our grounds and security teams care for our arboretum and agriculture project and keep everything clean, well maintained and safe.
