The Head teacher, headmaster, headmistress, head, or principal is the teacher with the greatest responsibility for the management of the Nambale Magnet School and therefore it’s only fitting the construction of the head teachers house. His location, adjacent to campus, will allow him to be easily available to teachers and students. Additional adjacent land has been acquired, and plans have been drawn for teacher housing to be built when funding is available.
The construction of a head teachers house created added security for the children by adding an additional on site adult supervisor to the school. This initiative also created a more attractive employment package for incoming teacher candidates. The house was opened on September 29th and the head teacher moved in last weekend. This brings him closer to school for close supervision of the school. This new abode will allow for needed on site supervision.
The excellent faculty and staff at the Nambale Magnet School are much sought after, and the Board works hard to ensure that they are well compensated and have incentive to remain at the School. It has become clear in recent years that providing housing for the Head Teacher (head of school) will help to ensure continuity and stability. It also facilitates working with students after class time, and makes the school more secure.
With generous donors, the house has been built and is being furnished!
Here are the Head Teacher Gama and Evalyn Wakhusama with some of the donors who funded the house’s construction, Diane Shoaf and Eve and Carey Tolley.
