My name is Leston Manyozo. I am twelve years old and I live with my mother who sells groundnuts and potatoes at the local market.

The construction team at our school has people with different skills, others focus on mixing mud whilst others do the actual building. I think that by the end of November or early December this year the school blocks will be completed, which will ensure that no student learns under a tree.

My favorite subjects are; English, Social and Environmental Sciences and Mathematics. I love sports and I like playing football, basketball, volleyball, tennis and rugby.

Our garden looks good because we grow vegetables of different kinds.

Currently our school has a lot of students. With the school blocks being constructed, more students could be accommodated. I think no learner will be abused.

When I grow up I want to become a soldier and a leader. I will be an army commander.
