    Dear KSS,
    I am happy to visit your page again. Every now and then I see new progress. I congratulate you on your success in the form five selections. I have learned that 18 of your 2017 form 4 students have been selected to proceed with advanced secondary education (form 5) and 2 have been selected to join technical colleges. My heartfelt congratulations on that.

    One question: Is there a plan to roll out a-level (form 5 and 6) studies any time soon? Don,t you think it is about time now? Given the facilities and support you get from friends, I am of the view that you should embrace that idea now. Let's move to new heights: let's explore new horizons! Just my thoughts!
    Otherwise I wish you well.

    Dear Students and Teachers of KSS.


    CONGRATULATIONS to all former students of form IV (2017) and their teachers. As the students of the year before, these students performed very well at the final examinations 2017. Thus they and their teachers worked hard and successful and this earns my deepest respect.

    Warmest regards,

    Dear Mr Bauer,
    Thank you for the nice pictures. I have seen all of them. What a humble institutional memory!- from school's humble beginning in 1985 to its heights to date. Quite gratifying - especially to those who were early students then - including 3 of my siblings and many other relatives and friends.

    About the leadership: I agree that the new Headmaster needs some assistance here and there, both from his predecessor as well as the other colleagues who work with him. But at the end of the day he is the leader and is the one who will be accountable to the school manager, parents and students for the time being. I am sure he is not oblivious of the fact that apart from the fact that the school has come of age, some efforts and energy were undoubtedly devoted by those who led it since 1985. They say old is gold ..., and I add "but gold is never old"!
    Once again I wish all of you all the best!

    Dear Sostheness,
    I am happy to see that you are ongoing to follow the developments at your former school. You and other readers may be interested in pictures of your school in the past. I recommend to visit the subpage "History of the School". There you will find a newly generated array of old pictures and the corresponding actual view of the school from the same position: http://kishumundu.jimdo.com/history-of-the-school/
    KARIBU !!

    Warm regards

    P.S.: I agree with the final statement in your post :-) , but in the last four weeks I could convince myself that Mr. Kiwara works hard to minimize interference with the headmaster. Instead he truly holds himself in the background and tries to support Mr. Shayo as much as possible.

    Dr. Sosteness Materu (Monday, 31 July 2017 07:11)

    Hello again!
    Congratulations Mwl Fredrick Shayo on your appointment as new Headmaster of my alma mater. I wish you all the best. Congratulations are also in order for Mwl James Kiwara for gracefully retiring after long and gratifying service. I wish you Mwl. Kiwara very good health and happiness. Just note: once a Headmaster always a Headmaster!

    Sosthenes Francis Materu (Saturday, 13 April 2013 16:36)

    Dear members, supporters and friends of Kishumundu Secondary School,

    I am more than delighted to find this page. I would like to share my story which entails my connection with this school.

    I studied at Kishumundu (1997-2000) under the able leadership of Mr. James Kiwara. I do not regret to have studied there. Being a last born in a family of a single parent (mother), I was lucky to be one of the beneficiaries of the support given by friends from Alexander and Kopenikus schule. was sponsored/ supported by Mr and Mrs Ferdinnand Kosch. Between 2001-2003, having finished my four-yea ordinary level of secondary education at Kishumundu, I joined Majengo Secondary School for my advanced level secondary(form fiv and six.

    After my secondary education I excelled well in my studies and qualified to pursue Bachelors degre in Laws (LL.B) at the University of Dar es Salaam (2004-2008). After my LL.B, I worked for one year before joining the University of the Western Cape in Cape Town, South Africa where, in collaboration with Humboldt University in Berlin, I obtained a Master of Laws Degree LL.M) in the year 2010.

    Interestingly, my connections with Germans did not end at Kishumundu. My masters education was sponsored by the German people through their widely known German Academic Exchange Program (DAAD). I was taught and supervised (for my Masters Thesis) by a German Professor from Humboldt University, and I partly did my studies at Humboldt University of Berlin in form of a summer school. As I also passed my LL.M well, the DAAD grated me yet another three-year scholarship to continue with doctoral studies (Ph.D) in law. Thus, since 2011, I have been a doctoral researcher at both University of the Western Cape in Cape Town and Humboldt in Berin, and I expect to graduate from Humboldt University in Berlin (God wiling) in early 2014. Thereafter, I will resume lecturing at the University of Dar es Salaam where I am employed as a law lecturer.

    While in Berlin I was able to meet Mr. Kosch and his wife, Christina, who traveled all the way from Southern Germany just to come and meet me in the cosmopolitan city. I was happy to meet them again, for I we had not met since 2002. I learned that they were both retired, but undoubtedly not tired.

    Therefore,my memories of Kishumundu as a place which shaped my educational aspirations will not fade easily. The headmaster in particular was always my main inspiration: a father-like figure and strong leader.In addition, all the teachers shaped my, I believe, God-given ability very well. In particular, I am indebted to the following teachers wo taught me various subject: Mr. Kiwara (Civics) Mr. Modest Noya (geography and Kiswaili), Mr Albert Minja (physics), Mr. Wilson Kira (Chemistry and Mathematics), Mr. John Lymo Chemistry), Mr. Francis Mlingwa (English), Mrs Monica Mbeu (Biology) and Mr. Daniel Njiu (English) They all instilled very many values in me, which I will always cherish and carry with me; they define me today. I learned studying hard and for a purpose, working hard, self-reliance, discipline, respect, determination, and above all, remaining focused to on's own defined goals.

    As I go up the education ladder,I always reflect on those early days and those wonderful people who molded me in school. I was glad that after my form six education, before joining University, I was able to go back to Kishumundu where I taught for one year as a volunteer, non-professional teacher (I was earning a modest 'salary' of about 30(thirty) US Dollars per month!). It gave me great pleasure to work with the same teachers who, two years back, had been teaching me. But I must admit that even as I worked with them as a co-member of staff, I was still their student in many respects. As I now look forward to getting my PhD, I also look forward to going back to Kishumundu as a proud alumnus not only to share my story and experience with the students and teachers, but also to encourage and motivate the students to remain focused towards realization of their dreams.

    Lastly, I am glad to see that the friendship and co-operation that started in the late 19990s between the school an German friends is still intact and growing. I am very happy to learn that things which we considered a nightmare during my time at Kishumundu, nmely internet and hostel accommodation, are now a reality. It is my hope that these facilities will have a tremendous effect in terms of making learning and teaching easier, as well as widening the catchment area of the school in terms of attracting students from all over the country. I particularly congratulate the leadership of Kishumundu secondary school for being able to create, nature and maintain the trust and confidence of us all. This is something that many others have failed to do.

    God bless you all.
