Catholic Oblate Missionaries established Annunciation Catholic Primary School in 1989 in conjunction with the Catholic Education Agency. The school, which caters for Primary 1 to Primary 6, now (11/15) has a population of 227 students. A team of 7 teachers staffs the school, although not all of them are fully trained. There are 6 classrooms but many are in poor condition. The school wishes to improve its infrastructure, in particular classroom furniture, teachers' accommodation and toilets. Annual school fees are 9,000 francs (approx. $15) per student, supplemented by a PTA levy, but collection is poor and it is often difficult to pay the teachers salaries. Students at Annunciation perform well in extracurricular activities, such as soccer, gymnastics and choral singing, although they are lacking in musical instruments. The school has a 100% pass rate in examinations.
