The Primary School

 

255 children attend the primary school. The breakdown is as follows:

⁃ Year 1: 52 pupils

⁃ Year 2: 42 pupils

⁃ Year 3A: 24 pupils

⁃ Year 3B: 25 pupils

⁃ Year 4: 50 pupils

⁃ Year 5: 29 pupils

⁃ Year 6: 25 pupils

There are nine teachers.

The language of instruction is French, except for Creole grammar lessons. Special weight is given to the French language, since it is the official language for educated Haitians. Nonetheless the level of French at the end of grammar school is very poor nationwide, therefore special emphasis is placed on language skills here.

The school welcomes French-speaking volunteers year-round to support teachers in their work. Educational aids such as blackboards, wall charts, a library equipped with learning supplements as well as reading & writing tools for Years 1 and 2 are available to teachers as well.
