At Lwengu School, we maintain very strong Christian and Moral values. The school organises Catholic services on Sundays and respects individual religious differences. The department of Guidance and Counselling offers lessons in career guidance and counselling and also organises career talks for pupils with people from various sectors of society, because we believe that a well-nurtured child is a happy child.
We also appreciate and encourage the uniqueness of each child. This helps our pupils to learn in a very relaxed atmosphere, giving them a chance to realize their full potential to ably face new challenges wherever they go.
