The Episcopal Church's Girls School shown here, is, like it's nearby primary feeder school and the boys's school (shown here: The Episcopal Church of Sudan Primary School in Omdurman, Founded in 1906 - 18th May 2011 and here: The Episcopal Church of Sudan Boys' School in Omdurman, Founded About 50 Years Ago - 18th May 2011 ), run down and in a state of severe neglect. Founded in 1912 - almost 100 years ago, the Episcopal Church has resolutely refused to spend the money donated to it for the schools in its care on the schools themselves. Indeed it has been the habit of the governing body of the Episcopal Church Schools in Omdurman to inform the staff working in them, that the Church is very poor and that the government routinely steals what little money that they have. This of course is an outrageous lie, designed to maintain the sense of poverty-stricken status quo, whilst the money that is donated for use in the ECS schools by various organisations, is spent elsewhere. The Church Missionary Society Africa is itself now refusing to donate further funds to the schools as previous donations remain unaccounted for.
The governing body of this ECS school is identical to that of Unity High School - minus the Copts, and thus, given the criminal activities of some of these people in their dealings with Unity (notably the Bishop of Khartoum), questions need to be asked over the finances of the ECS schools in Omdurman and a clear accounting given of where all the money has gone that has been donated to it. Winifred Hill, a former Trustee of Unity High School was also the Principal of this school - once more showing the clear historical links between Unity and the early work of the CMS in providing schools in Sudan.
