The pupils dress for the school day in their blue uniforms which they wear with great pride. They are polite and enthusiastic, always meeting any visitor to the school with their word of greeting “Sanu” which means welcome, accompanied by a wide smile. Home for these pupils is a compound of mud huts, scattered throughout the countryside. The huts are built of mud and straw, with straw thatching on a ridge of sticks for the roof.
St Mary’s School, is now a reality, education exists today where little existed before. The dream of an education has become a reality through the work of Fr. Donall SMA, Sr. Paulina OLA, Rowan Hand and all the supporters in Ireland. Where once the children were educated under the trees, now they have a proper well built school.
