Secondary School Patrice Lumumba
The objective of the Patrice Lumumba Secondary School is to provide secondary school education to young people and adults who, for a reason or another (inappropriate age, lack of vacancies, etc.), cannot study in public schools.
The School provides secondary education (grades 8-10) in line with the national curriculum in two shifts (day and evening) and offers a wide range of extracurricular activities for the day students.
The School was originally inaugurated in 1989 as a training center with an adult literacy program. Seven years later in 1996, it was turned into a primary school offering teching in grades 1-7. Since its beginning, the School combined the national curriculum with various extra-curricular activities such as gardening and sports. In 2003, the School extended its activities to secondary education. Six years later, in 2009, the primary school functions were discontinued and the School became a secondary school only.
Today, the Patrice Lumumba Secondary School has the capacity to enroll 1,150 students each year, including in both day and evening shifts. The School is located in the suburban area of Patrice Lumumba in Matola, Maputo Province.
