The history of the Lusaka and District Child Welfare Society dates back to the late 1930s. Available records show that it was an affiliate member of the Northern Rhodesia Child Home Welfare Society, a member of the Rhodesian Child Home Welfare Society.
The Rhodesian Child Welfare Society had its Headquarters in Bulawayo. The objectives of the Society were:-
a.To build, equip or acquire a Seaside Home for European Children at Muizenberg in the union of South Africa, and at such other place or places as may be decided upon by the Society from time to time, and purchase or acquire and hold land for such Home or Homes.
b.To carry on such Home or Homes and to arrange for holidays for children to be spent in such Home or Homes.
The first Council of the Society which was established in 1937 comprised members who were elected from Child Welfare Home Societies from Southern and Northern Rhodesia.
Mr. F. S. Roberts was the first member to be elected to the Council from Northern Rhodesia.
The Northern Rhodesia Child Home Welfare Society in Lusaka was transformed into the Lusaka District Child Welfare Society in the mid 1950s. The Lusaka District Child Welfare Society is the last of the olden type of welfare societies of the 1930’s. The Community-based institution started operating in this present premise in 1953 when the colonial Governor Sir Rein donated his house to be used as a Day Care and Pre-school for white children. Since then a committee of parents has been elected each year to run the affairs of this Society.
Over the years the Society has had different Management Committees and tremendous progress has been made, particularly the extension of the original Nursery school to include a Basic and High School. The School is managed by a Management Committee, which constitutes a policy making body elected by the parents at an Annual General Meeting (AGM). It is the policy of the association that the school should be run on non-profit making basis. Hence the user fees are generally much lower than private schools. But, this has not compromised the standards of education in the school.
To conscientize and motivate pupils to become skilled and responsible citizens.
To achieve a high standard of education and general child welfare by optimizing pupils’ educative participation, re-enforcing staff motivation and rationalizing parents’ involvement.
In furtherance of such object the Society shall as necessary co-operate with Central and Local Authorities and with other Organizations and Institutions in all matters relating to child welfare. The objectives of the society are:-
(a)To promote intellectual, social, moral, physical and aesthetic potential of children.
(b)To organize members into an intensive society for the furtherance of children’s needs and concerns.
(c)To mobilize all resources and account for them with diligence.
(d)To operate as a non-profit making organization.
(e)To positively contribute to national and international child welfare activities.
