Private Christian Pre-School, Primary & Secondary School
"Rooted in Christ, Ready for Tomorrow" Our History
Our current brick buildings were originally built with the help of Carl and Eleanor Johnson (Jesse’s grandparents) in 1985 to house a primary school.
The school followed the government curriculum, but it taught the Bible as well. School fees and teachers’ salaries were subsidized by the missionaries. The school ran for 8 years. During the war, the school was forced to close because it was unsafe for any children to walk to and from school or even to gather in large groups. Refugee families moved into the classrooms. When Jesse and Joy Johnson a

Yesterday was International Mother Language Day, so local news journalists came to interview us about how Discovery, as an English-system school, incorporates Kirundi. This is something we try to do well, so we were happy to speak to them. Hopefully the report will play on Startimes channel 125 at 19h on Saturday. Let's see!
Funeral today. 800 people in attendance. They all stood and prayed for Mia, who is in the white blanket being held by her aunt. May God continue to comfort Yvone's family.
Please pray for this heartbreaking situation! Two DS teachers each married one of a set of identical twins, Rachel and Yvonne. Both couples had babies due this month. Yvonne had an emergency c-section last week and then went to be with the Lord just before dawn yesterday as a result of post-partum complications. Her husband Delphin is grieving deeply, and little Mia (in the pink blanket with the IV port) is without a Mommy. Rachel delivered just this morning and is having trouble believing Yvonne is really gone... Please pray for them and for our whole community.
Please pray for our seniors as they work through the process of applying to universities and looking for scholarships, often working on their phones as they don't have computers at home. Students have been accepted to universities in the UK, the US, and South Korea so far, which is encouraging (They deserve it! I am so proud of them!) but full scholarships are elusive and universities cost so much these days that even 75% scholarships leave daunting amounts....
Our drumming team is getting ready to perform at our first graduation later this year. The Burundi drummers are famous, and drums are an incredibly symbolic part of culture here. The word for drum is the same as the word for throne-- they are a symbol of authority, among other things. Each part of the drum has a specific name and meaning...
Our faculty is becoming more and more committed to hands-on learning. What a fun math activity! Great work Tc Alexander!
We made great progress on the Ruben's fire tube today. It worked to show sound waves... and there weren't any explosions. We will try 1 more time with a louder speaker and a longer pipe...

Looks like choosing a snack at the school cantine is a big decision requiring lots of discussion... but everyone is happy with the end result. Chapatis to share! Yum!
Way to go, Kenny! You impressed them a lot! Thirst for learning, confidence, impeccable English... way to be a good ambassador for our school!
This trimester teachers spent our seminar day sharing their knowledge with each other on a variety of topics- assessment, benchmarks, classroom management, etc... We greatly appreciate this spirit of collaboration!
Enjoying looking back at the wonderful times of Christmas celebration last month. Teachers and students alike did a fabulous job presenting what they had prepared, and the library staff coordinated everything flawlessly. God was Glorified through it all!
Lots going on today as we near the end of the trimester. After the day's exams were done, our Admin had a goodbye meal with our international volunteers, the Art and Games Club decorated the secondary classroom block with some help from Student Council, 7th Grade had Chapel... and much more that we didn't catch on film. Lots to be thankful for!
We decorated the school office today. Here are Teachers Adrien and Samuel enjoying it 🎄🥰
Today we had a visit from Mr. Ramadhani from EducationUSA. He gave a wonderful presentation to our Juniors and Seniors about preparing for university. This is our school president, Patience, thanking him for the time he spent with us.

So thankful Whitney is here to teach P5 and for the two volunteers from Germany who come in twice a week.
Students celebrated the completion of exam week with skateboarding, paper airplanes, and inter -class football matches.
We've come a long way!
