Gyetighi Primary School is #1!


DSCF3642

Six years ago, before we entered into partnership with the District of Karatu, Gyetighi Primary School was the lowest-performing school in the ward. The school was understaffed, underfunded, and had an abysmal pass rate of only 30% on students’ Standard 7 National Exams. TCF recognized that Gyetighi’s low performance made education the weak link in securing the futures we envisioned for our children, and we could not allow that to continue.

Providing an effective foundation necessary for a successful school means hiring well-trained teachers, ensuring sufficient resources for both teachers and students, and empowering the community to invest in the education of their youth.  With a lot of hard work by our team and the generous support of our donors, the success of our partnership with Gyetighi has far surpassed our dreams and very ambitious goals for excellence. With pride, we announce that Gyetighi Primary School now has a pass rate of 99% on Standard 7 National Exams, is the #1 government school in the district, and is ranked within the top 2% of both government and private primary schools in the country!
