Bingham Academy, Addis Ababa, Ethiopia

Bingham Academy, Addis Ababa, Ethiopia

During the latter half of 2011 my daughter taught at Bingham Academy in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. Bingham is an international Christian school with staff and students drawn from around the globe. There are local children attending as well and it is located in one of the poorer areas of the city.

In December last year my wife and I visited our daughter for two weeks up until the time her term finished. We stayed with her in her apartment on the campus, so we experienced school life up close. We both found the experience uplifting and inspiring and were made to feel very welcome by the staff.

I was not surprised that her short stay has inspired our daughter to return to the school in a few years’ time. In fact, both my wife and I are very experienced teachers and are wondering whether we also have a role to play in the future. We will see. Meanwhile I’ll share a few photos taken on the campus.

For the observant readers, the trees in the small forest near the oval are Australian eucalypts – we felt quite at home. There are also large tracts of eucalypt forests surrounding Addis Ababa, but more of that in another post coming soon.

  1. I am interested in having my three children admitted to your school, next year: one will be 4 years leaving Nursery, the other will be 9 years going to grade 5 and the third will be 11 years going to grade 7.
    I would appreciate being advised on the procedure for application and on teh availability of places for my children.
    I have heard and read anbout your school and I am impressed and that is why I would like to have my children study from your school.
    I look forward to your favourable consideration of my request.
    Regards

      Dear sir,

      You have come to the wrong site. My site is about my travels here in Australia and various other countries. My wife and I visited Bingham Academy when our daughter was teaching there two years ago.

      You need to go to the website of the school to ask about enrolments.

      Hi Steve,
      Thanks for visiting and leaving your comments. Our daughter is busy packing her belongings and putting them into storage because she is returning to Bingham in early August. She is planning on staying there to teach for the next two years. It’s such a lovely school.
