After 14 years of service as headteacher, Judah Sikamikami has decided it’s time for him to step down from Mukwashi and move on to a new task. He’ll be leaving us in December, at the end of this term.
Since ‘Day One’, Judah has been the friendly face greeting pupils, teachers, parents and visitors, and he has overseen all the school’s development. He managed the building of the teacher housing block, the grade 6 – 9 classrooms, the new secondary school building (including the Science lab) and the girls’ toilets.
More importantly, Judah has supervised the education of thousands of pupils, encouraging them all to achieve the very best they can. He has also continually inspired our teachers to provide the high-quality education for which the school is now famous: we are excited to see what’s next for Judah.
When Judah heads off for his new adventure in December, he will leave Mukwashi in very capable hands. Our current deputy head, Mulemba Sakuwaha, will become acting headteacher in January 2021, and will serve in that capacity until we complete a formal recruitment process.
