Eagles Wings Children’s Village provides education for over 500 students from impoverished families who live in the neighbouring community of Lubumba Village.
Nursery and Primary One to Seven
Students in the first eight levels (Nursery and Primary One to Seven) attend EWCV’s elementary school, Beth Pipe Nursery and Primary School.
Students in Primary One to Three are taught English, Mathematics, Literacy I (reading), Literacy II (writing), Christian Education, Creative Performing Arts (music, art/crafts), and Luganda. They have morning and afternoon recesses.
Students in Primary Four to Seven study English, Mathematics, Integrated Science (which includes Agriculture), Social Studies, and Christian Education. At the end of Primary Seven, students write a Primary Leaving Examination set by the state. Upon passing, they are promoted to Senior One.
Senior One to Six
Students in Senior One to Six attend Eagles Wings Children’s Village High School.
Students in Senior One to Four (Level O) are taught English Language, English Literature, Mathematics, Geography, Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Agriculture, History, Christian Education, Commerce, Accounts, Entrepreneurship, Computer, Fine Art, and Luganda. At the end of Senior Four, the students write a state exam.
Students in Senior Five and Six (Level A) choose one of the many pre-determined 3-subject combinations, plus one additional course. For example, a student interested in becoming an engineer might choose the PEM combination (Physics, Economics, and Mathematics) plus one extra course of his/her choice. At the end of Senior Six, the students write a state exam.
Eagles Wings also supports some vocational students. These students take courses and do practicums or apprenticeships to become such things as mechanics, carpenters, hairdressers, and seamstresses.
Some EWCV students have completed high school and have gone on to study at a university or college. Whenever possible, as sponsors are able, Eagles Wings supports these students as they study to become, for example, doctors, nurses, teachers, lawyers, and social workers.
