HOW IT ALL STARTED

Hansal International School is a Nursery and Primary School that was founded by Her Excellency (Mrs.) Esther Iyorozitei Seibarugu on the 17th of September, 2012. The school commenced full operation with few pupils, 20 academic staff and 15 non-academic staff. Today, our population had increased tremendously.

SCHOOL BUILDING

Hansal International School currently occupies about 300 plots of land. It has one Administrative block, two academic blocks, a paediatric centre, staff quarters and large parking space.

FACILITIES

There are 36 Classrooms, each classroom housing its own toilet. The classrooms are spacious, well illuminated and conducive for proper learning. Additional facilities include; spacious and well equipped playing field, large assembly hall, Art Centre, Music studio, Science laboratory, Food technology room (Home Economics), ICT centre, Language Lab, well stocked library and Media room. There is a garden, which offers horticultural opportunities and eco-learning.

Hansal International School is well resourced, and information and communication technology is strength of the school. A specialist technician and teachers support ICT provision and wide use is made of ICT to enhance learning throughout the school.One coaster bus and two mini buses provide effective transport system for the school. This also enables all groups to make regular use of the community (Field trip) and this forms an important aspect of the school curriculum.

STAFFING

The school has a large, well-qualified and talented team of teaching and support staff. In the Nursery section for instance, each class is entitled to a teacher and a care-giver (Minder). We also have special teachers in Music, Art, Physical and Health Education, French, Geography, Home Economics, Science and ICT. Our team of experts in media, speech therapy, combat sport and many more add flavour to our extracurricular activities.

The school acknowledges the staff as its greatest resource.
