GAP College partners with the Lusito Association
GAP College and Lusito School have seen their numbers dwindle due to the Covid-19 pandemic which has led to several lockdowns over the past two years.
The President of the Lusito Association, Sergio Aquino, said: “The Lusito Association began 45 years ago in Judith Park. The school moved to its current location in 1996 and has grown steadily since the first lockdown began in March 2020.
“We lost a lot of children to the Covid-19 pandemic, which forced the school into ‘hibernation’. We saw that the only way forward for the school was to partner with the GAP College.
“Gap College has grown steadily and we have given them the space to grow while they also run the Lusito School.”
The two schools started the partnership in January this year.
GAP College’s Dr Tracey Stewart said: ‘Since GAP College started, we have moved three times in order to help more learners. Since the start of the school year, the children have adapted well to the new school and we have already welcomed 25 new learners.
Lusito School’s annual fundraiser, Lusito Land Festival, will not be returning this year but may occur in the future.
The Lusito Land Festival is important for schools as it will serve as a fundraiser.
