In 2008 Pallotti Secondary School became a Two Form – Entry School. There are now 381 students.

Generous donors helped to complete further classrooms, dormitories and toilets.

The Sixth Form Centre, Computer Room, Staff Houses, Water Harvesting Facilities and a second Water Borehole are on the plan and waiting for further donations.

The annual entrance examination attracts around 500 candidates. Only eighty can be taken.

Thousands of girls have no chance of getting a Secondary education.
