Nyongani School Inc.
The establishment of Nyongani School Inc. was conceived and planned during the year 1985 with the purpose of bringing quality yet affordable primary education close to the home’s of some 500 children from families living within T.S. Cruz Subdivision, Interville III Subdivision, and Greenfields III Subdivision. The vision was to create a new school in the area that would help parents cut down costs on transportation allowances and safety hazards as brought about by sending kids to schools located around the busy town of Novaliches.
The name “Nyongani” was proposed from the name of its founder, Dr. Tobia Nyongani. It was transferred as time goes by to relatives. In present time, the grand daughter of founder, Mrs. Thelma S. Nyongani was the school directress.
The school which was then housed on a two-storey residential building along Osmeña street formally opened in June of 1985 with only the Nursery, Kindergarten 1, Kindergarten 2 levels initially having a total enrolment of 36 students with 3 highly competent and trained teachers. Subsequently, three levels were added yearly until the school year 1987-1988 when the first batch of grade VI students graduated. Its enrolment continued to increase in the years that followed when it market extended to other areas like Llano Road, Queensland Subdivision within its vicinity. In 1996, as it continued to attract more students, the school has to move to a new and permanent location- a 1,039-square meter lot at the corner of the Interville III Subdivision.
Meanwhile, the number of concerned parents has grown swiftly in favour of the location, functionality and curricular offerings at the same school. Given the recognition, the school recently opened the High school level to meet the demand of the parents wanting their children to continue their education in the same pre-school, elementary tradition have grown and accustomed.
Just last 2006; the second floor was partially built which now provides 6 spacious classrooms that accommodate the growing school population. Three of the classrooms can be converted into one multi-purpose function hall for small school gatherings and programs. The library with a large collection of books, magazines and other educational materials is also located at the second floor.
This year’s anticipated full-grown enrollment, Nyongani School is now offering an advanced Math and Science curriculum with a full-force integration of wide variety of activities. Centralized computer network system is also being applied for more convenience for the students. The school is also trying to come up with Varsity team training of different sports to pave the way towards athletic skills of all Nyongani School students.
