This is the old kitchen of GS Cyimbazi and this is the one in construction
 
After the inspection of G.S Cyimbazi (classrooms, kitchen, latrines, library, OLPC XO and laptops, in the presence of the Head Mistress and the parent Representatives, meeting with staffs and students, we found that: they don’t have ICT laboratory and the XO laptops are only used to teach ICT skills from p4 to p6; Teachers are not trained in the use of XO laptops as a tool for teaching and learning other subjects. The only school to be over populated is p6 because of the single shift in a range of 56 to 65.Others are between 47 to 55.In the upper level of primary and even in secondary school, we noticed a use of both Kinyarwanda and English. P2 and P3 are not learning ICT and the secondary just learn ICT theoretically.
 
Bio-chemistry laboratory and some of the products needed for the practices at Agahozo Shalom youth village
 
The Agahozo Shalom Youth Village is a private owned school with all the equipment needed for student to learn in good conditions. They have three ICT rooms with 94 desktops with internet connectivity. There is no case of overcrowding students in classrooms but we noticed a lack of textbooks. The Head teacher raised an issue of being considered as a private school while it support the government in educating orphans. The ministry of education team headed by the Deputy Director General of REB, Mrs Angelique Tusiime, noticed that the school has a one year program of catch up for English and sciences and after, teach in English only from S4 up to S6.
The library is very small, science equipment not enough and school leaders are not aware of syllabus.
 
The Mineduc team exchanging views with teachers and student on obstacles to quality education
 
In both schools, the Mineduc team had a talk with teachers and students on drug abuse, unwanted pregnancies, good behavior, role of parents in the education of their children and other values which can help student and tearchers to improve the quality of education.
