Magoso School

Magoso started with only fifty pupils. It just started like a joke. There were only few teachers.They were teaching the fifty pupils without any complain. One day Lilian came to our school with visitors we were very happy to see the visitors we sang for them and they felt very happy. We were only few pupils but we sang to them. After some few months, the pupils started increasing it was just from baby-class to class four. The next month; the visitors who came, returned again with their friends. We also song to them. The bought us books and pencils. She came and organised with lilian and built a big place so that it masy be enough for all the pupils. The school was started for the orphans. Now we have many pupils and teachers. Our school is famous, we are one of the best schools in the district. All the pupils learn well. We thank God for what he has done.
