Bereko Secondary School is a community of 363 students, twelve teaching staff, and one non teaching staff. The school board has eight governors. The school sits on a large site of 57 hectares and has 10 class rooms, 3 laboratories, and 1 administration block. The school year comprises two five month terms.
A new dormitory block has been built, which will allow female students, from villages that are too far away to be day students, to be accomodated as boarders. To date though the block remains empty. We have been able to support the purchase of six bunk beds but, other than that, the block still needs fitting out.
The picture below shows Bereko's Ward Councillor, Zacharia Barajid standing outside one of the new dormitory blocks and below that is a picture of the bed bays inside.
