Animal cruelty attacks
In 2009 the school was the target of several attacks on its agricultural areas; a goat, several chickens and other animals were killed and/or mutilated. The perpetrators are unknown; however, sympathy was shown from all across the region and a walk-a-thon helped raise funds to replace the animals and improve security.
