“With this I want to express my sincere appreciation to all parents who have prayed and supported the school from infancy to now,” Manongi said.
Head teacher for Wings of Hope Christian School Raymond Baro says it is such a joy each day to help children achievement their daily tasks and goals.
“Our approach of teaching and modelling of students is different from our secular government schools. We teach according to individual student peace of learning. As a teacher I see it as one of the greatest responsibilities and is a call to serve our children. It is the command from God, not just a career,” Baro said.
Ishmael Boboli on behalf of parents residing at Kondazale area said the establishment of this school is a source of blessing for parents, children and surrounding communities.

Moreover, the vision of the school is for all children ages three to ten years within the school catchment must access early quality Christian education and its mission is to provide a conducive environment for early childhood teaching, teachers must always be available to teach and children are nurtured with love utilising preventive approaches with clear guidelines and expectations to help child be successful.
