Neesim School

Staff at Neesim School

Neesim School aims to meet the educational needs of the three surrounding villages, and also to function as a model school for quality education in the district.  It has grown from being a Primary School to a full basic school up to Junior High!

The school now has 11 classes (Kindergarten 1 and 2, Primary 1 to 6 and Junior High 1 to 3), and almost 400 pupils.  There are 19 teaching staff.  It is founded upon Christian beliefs, but pupils from all religious backgrounds are welcome.  Each child at the school is able to attend for the minimal price of 80p per month.  It actually costs £5 per term (4 months) per child but this would be unaffordable.

Neesim School lays a strong focus on foundational skills for reading and maths, through teaching in the local language in the early years, developing resources, and enhancing all learning skills through play.  The School also tries to use different methods of discipline than the beating common in schools in Ghana.

Neesim School invests a lot into teacher training.  It provides both in-service training and access to formal distance-learning courses for the teaching staff.

Close management of the teaching staff means that simple things such as punctuality, attendance and lesson planning make Neesim School stand out from the other schools in the district.

From May 2015, the school’s library began to open outside school hours to offer opportunities to read and watch educational documentaries to both the school’s pupils and the wider community.  This has been a very valuable and popular resource.

Since September 2015, Neesim Junior High School has added a class each year, and the first JH3 class wrote their Basic Education Certificate Exams in June 2018.
