  • History of School:


    Piparo Presbyterian School was established in 1889 and was originally known as the Piparo Canadian Mission School. It is located in a rural village eight miles east of Gasparillo. The school, since 2005, has not been housed in the main school building because of poor conditions of the infrastructure as stated in the findings of the Ministry of Health. This building was demolished in 2013. The school is now housed in an adjacent building which was originally used as the school’s computer lab. This building houses the entire population and has an ‘open floor’ plan with classes being separated by wooden blinds, which also serve as blackboards. The classroom spaces can only accommodate a limited number of students. Therefore the physical capacity of this building is very challenging to accommodate students as well as store school stocks. This institution educates children from five to fifteen years old. The students come from low socio economic backgrounds. Presently the school, which is coeducational, has an enrolment of sixty (60) students (37 boys and 23 girls). Thirty–three percent (33%) of the students are from broken homes.   At the Piparo Presbyterian School, there is an Acting Principal, 7 teachers and a Business Operation Assistant 1. All of the teachers on staff are Teacher’s Training College graduates. There are four female teachers and three male teachers, with varying age and experience differences. There are two teachers with over twenty – five years experience, three who have twenty years experience and one who have been teaching for at least fifteen years and one with nine years. The ancillary staff consists of one full – time cleaner and one part – time cleaner.
