Much of the learning at Barwaaqo also takes place outside the classroom in activities such as sports, community development, and other recreational activities. These activities aim to improve Barwaaqo students’ physical well-being as well as their confidence, leadership and teamwork skills.
In addition, Barwaaqo’s School of Education includes a significant practical teaching component where students can hone their skills. In the first years of a Barwaaqo student’s education, this will include teaching a class of students from the local Village. Abaarso School has implemented an extremely successful tutoring program, which serves as a model. In a Barwaaqo student’s final years, she will be actively teaching with instructor oversight and feedback.
