Excellent Form 6 Results Again

Once again we are very proud of the achievments of our 6th form students in their A level exams. 14 students were entered and 11 of those students achieved high enough grades to qualify outright for university admission. The remaining 3 may also be admitted, depending on the general pass level.
     The results are:-
     Division One=2
     Division Two=9
     Division  Three=3
     Division Four= 0
     Division 0(Fail)=0.
These results place WATU Secondary School nationwide 27th out of 127 schools of our size and 6th out of 16 such schools in the Kilimanjaro Region.
We have to thank the students and teachers for all their hard work and all those who gave support and encouragement during the study and exam periods.
And as our director Josiah Mchome writes “a  special thank you goes to Moshi International School for helping us with science equipment and chemicals at a critical time.”

Senior Boys' Hostel Opened

The new boys' hostel extension is now being used by form V, VI and a few from IV. The electricity has been installed so that the boys can read and study at night and with so much space everybody is really happy.

Huge thanks go to both La Chataigneraie Tanzania group of 2017 and the CDL 2017 Watu group who accessed a grant from CIS. Both of these Geneva international schools have been incredibly supportive over a long period of time.

Student Newsletter Sent to Schools Worldwide

A development that has only been made possible by the donations of laptops and the broadband tower installation is the production of the students’ own newsletter or magazine. With the help of Mr. Deo and Goodluck, they have now produced two editions (see the newsletter page). Already they have been sent out to a number of schools both international schools, in  Geneva, Mexico, Austria  and Singaporeand a number of national  schools in Britain. Hopefully some of these schools will develop links with our students via the WATU Secondary School Facebook page or by producing a similar newsletter for WATU students to enjoy. Such global contact is one of the more unusual but very important aspects of our school, one that can surely develop in the students a greater awareness and understanding of the wider world.

Year 6 Graduation 2016


May 10th was the occasion of the 2016 graduation, the third to take place at the school. The guest of honour was Mr. George Lugata, the Zonal Director for TIGO, the supplier of our internet connection. The students had just finished their final 'A' level exams on May 6th so were able to relax and really enjoy the day along with their proud parents/guardians and the staff of the school. Well Done to you all and we wish you every success in the future. 

We'll always be happy to see you back at WATU and would love you to keep in touch.
