Komothai Primary School

An introduction

Komothai is situated at about 7,000 feet above sea level on a ridge overlooking the Kipipiri district. The number of pupils is continuing to increase rapidly. It is an unpopular school for teachers since for many it is a long way from their homes.

What have we done?

In 1994, the British Army came to level Komothai’s playing fields and to build two classrooms, along with the foundations for three more and an administration block. In 2000 we finished these buildings and built a verandah to provide protection for the walkway. The walls were pointed and the doors and windows repainted. Later we built another new four classroom block, renovated the staffroom and improved the library. A new stone water tank was constructed and much effort was put into terracing and landscaping the site. The modernised school was formally ‘handed over’ at a ceremony attended by our Patron, The Duke of Richmond, on 4 March 2005.

What’s the plan?

HSK has left Komothai to its own devices for some time now while attention is focused on other, more needy schools. However, we are monitoring progress and will return if necessary.
