Fransalian Hekima Secondary School at Maji ya Chai
After having realized the importance of education for the future of Tanzania, we decided to open a secondary school, so that young pupils can have access to quality secondary school education. The youth is the wealth of a nation. Their talents have to be made use of for the nation building. It is for this reason that the Fransalians decided to open a secondary School at Maji ya Chai to help the Government, to eradicate poverty in the country through quality education.
On January 8, 2018, Rev. Father Abraham Vettuvelil MSFS, the Superior General of Fransalians, blessed and inaugurated Frasalian Hekima Secondary School.
The School is registered (Reg. No. S. 5013) under the Education Ministry of Tanzania.
The school provides high quality "O" Level (Form I - IV) education for both boys and girls of all religions alike. Frasalian Hekima School has a well-furnished infrastructure with 12 classrooms, laboratories for Chemistry, Biology and Physics, a large Computer Lab, a well-stocked library with a spacious reading room, a 1,000 seat mutli-purpose hall. We provide well-equipped boarding for boys and girls.
The development of a nation depends upon education of its citizens. The Management and the staff of Fransalian Hekima school are committed to concentrate on moulding the our students to become the best citizens of Tanzania by providing wisdom and knowledge through value based education. The school administration takes care of the students for their integral development by offering timely motivation seminars and co-curricular activities like sports and arts.
