slide3

Sadly not everyone gets into St Judes. The weekly student selection numbers demonstrate how desperate people are for a good education

slide6

A young woman called Gemma Rice (now Sisia), from a sheep farm in Australia, believed that a good education should be a right and NOT a privilege. She believed in “Fighting Poverty Through Education”

slide8

After receiving a piece of land from her now Father-in-law Gemma promised to build a small school in Arusha, Tanzania - East Africa.

slide9

Founded with the assistance and dedication of Rotary Clubs and friends, the building of St Jude’s began in 2002.

slide10

St Jude’s first classrooms were built by Rotarians and volunteers from Gemma’s home district in Northern NSW, Australia

slide11

Rotary Working Groups were instrumentalin all building construction during these early years.

slide12

The very first Rotary Matching Grant for example, was used to build the first water tank erected at St Jude’s.

slide15

Gemma also believed that regardless of skin colour, country of birth, religion or tribe, every child deserves the best.

slide16

Good classrooms were built, qualified local teachers employed, adequate education resources purchased and a safe school environment developed so that both students and staff could thrive.

slide17

St Jude’s now provides a free quality education for over 1,500of the poorest children, with boarding rooms provided for over 1000.

slide18

Take a few moments to imagine how you would feel if you were unable to provide for your child as you had hoped to.

slide20

In 2010 18.8% of the Tanzanian population received a primary education with this percentage falling to just 12.9% receiving a secondary education.

In Tanzania, the total number of schooling years is expected to be nine at most, compared with 21 in the west.

slide21

Imagine having to send your children to your local government school…

  • 7 teachers for 772 students
  • 3 textbooks per 100 students
  • Water can be up to 5kms away
  • No food provided
  • Annual school budget $200 (excluding teachers salaries)
slide28

a fleet of 20 allowing even more students and staff to come to and from the school every day as they now don’t have to walk before the sun rises...

slide33

Imagine receiving the news that your child has a place in St Judes.

A school which gives a completely free yet quality primary, secondary and tertiary education…

slide34

...a school where your child will be encouraged every step of the way on their journey to becoming a responsible and caring citizen of Tanzania.

slide35

Students qualify for entry to St Jude’s by living in poverty and possessing strong academic potential.

slide36

St Jude’s blends the best of Tanzanian and international teaching methodologies to enable St Jude’s students to develop critical thinking abilities and high moral values.

slide37

Although The School of St Jude does not receive any funding from the Tanzanian Government, St Jude’s enjoys a positive and supportive relationship with Ministry staff.

Ministry of Education Staff

slide41

St Jude’s is educating future community leaders; all students are exposed to positive male and female leadership role models in an environment of mutual respect.

slide42

Respect, responsibility, honesty and kindness are highly valued and embedded into the education process.

slide43

St Jude’s now also provides employment for over 340 Tanzanians, who are becoming leaders in their own right: the academics, cleaners, cooks, gardeners, admin staff, bus drivers, and maintenance and support staff.

slide44

St Jude’s purchases the essential goods required to run the school everyday from local people. The positive economic ripple effect is wide spread.

slide48

You will receive the warmest of welcomes when you journey to the heart of the world’s most diverse and richly cultured continent by joining one of our Tour Groups.

slide49

This is a truly unique experience and gives you the opportunity to meet our Students and Staff plus get to know the real Tanzania.

slide50

Arusha is a colourful, bustling and constantly evolving hub for tourists seeking the thrill of a safari to the Serengeti or Ngorongoro Crater.

slide51

Arusha is also the entry point for a trek up Mt Kilimanjaro or Mt Meru before heading to the exotic Tanzanian island paradise of Zanzibar.

slide52

What does the future hold?

The School of St Jude currently provides a free, quality education from Standard One through to Form Three (Year 9) in Secondary.

slide55

We need to continue to build well set-up classrooms, and finance appropriate teacher/student numbers. Sound learning outcomes must continue as St Jude’s increases student numbers.

slide56

We need to ensure that our 150 (and growing) local Tanzanian Teachers continue to be assisted by international Teacher Mentors and ESL Specialists.

slide57

We must also ensure our students not only complete Secondary school, but also continue onto Tertiary education/training within Africa as well……

slide58

So that St Jude’s will enable both current and future students to experience the joys of living as productive and responsible adults – everyday for many years to come.

slide59
