At Simoko Trust School, we understand the importance of Primary Education, as children acquire new skills and knowledge rapidly during the elementary years.
We follow the curriculum set forth and established by the Zambian Ministry of Education. Our qualified and experienced teachers are so passionate about the young ones, and are keen to inspire, motivate and propel them towards greatness. We offer the following Subjects:
Every Friday after break is time for PE. All pupils are to be dressed in school-approved PE attire. Other extracurricular activities such as video shows, songs, plays and other children info- and edutainment are regularly conducted on Tuesdays and Thursdays to encourage children to easily and freely interact and exercise.
Dates for field trips are communicated to parents at the beginning of every term. These usually take place in Term 2.
Communication Books are a key element in enhancing communication between teachers and parents. These are used to check the progress of each child and they are sent to parents twice a month. In the absence of communication books, parents may write, for the attention of teachers and the school administration, any pressing issue concerning their children performance or conduct in the homework.
On Careers Day, pupils are asked to come dressed in attire symbolizing their career wishes. For example, if a child wishes to become a doctor when he/she grows up they come dressed as a doctor on this day. There are motivational career talks from notable professionals/personalities in society; i.e. a doctor, a nurse, a businessman, lawyer and a few others who speak to the children about their dream careers. We urge our parents to allow the children to select a career of their choice.
Class teachers have been asked to issue homework on a daily basis to the children. Parents need to check books of their children to ensure that this is the case.
In order to encourage children to read widely and develop and sustain a culture of reading, the School gives out reading books and monitors the children in their reading. This is done on a monthly basis.
Our classes cover children from Grade One to Seven and we currently have 358 pupils enrolled in these classes.
We had a 100% pass at grade 7 the past 4 years we have had grade 7. This is a clear demonstration of our dedication to excellence in providing high quality education through exceptional teaching methodologies provided by our specialized and dedicated members of staff.
We have over 20 qualified teachers who have a great passion for instilling knowledge in today's young minds.
