Rabecca is a 17-year-old senior three student at Nyaka Vocational Secondary School (NVSS). After graduating, Rabecca wants to be a cardiologist. She loves science and is involved in the Nyaka Robotics Club. While participating in the robotics club, Rabecca has attempted to make an automatic fan from scratch and has even had hands-on experience using a 3-D printer! These experiences have propelled Rabecca further into wanting to learn more about biology, chemistry and physics.
Rabecca says, “I am very assured and confident enough that Nyaka will help me get my dream job since it has always been there for me since I started schooling with all necessities being given to me and paying my school fees.”
On Monday, January 10th, 2022 Nyaka welcomed children back to school! In order to keep our community safe, teachers and support staff have been vaccinated. Daily, staff members are doing all they can to follow the strict Ugandan Ministry of Health’s (MoH) operating guidelines including cleaning, maintenance, the provision of hand washing stations, masks for all students, plans for COVID-19 safe classrooms, etc. Medical personnel from the local Kambuga hospital, have visited Nyaka to address staff and students at the Nyaka Vocational Secondary School (NVSS) to provide additional guidance on how to stay safe.
Students are being tested regularly. Any student who tests positive is treated and quarantined to protect themselves and the rest of the community. We are grateful that at this time all infected students are recovering quickly. Students who are of age are encouraged to get vaccinated against COVID-19.
