Bugulumbya Primary School

Bugulumbya Primary signNumber of pupils : 1690 (852 boys & 838 girls)

School Motto : Education is Power

This is a large school which started in 1924 under the Church of Uganda. It later became Government aided in 1948. The Government constructed two classroom blocks in 1955 and a third block in 2003.

Since then the school has received no outside assistance. It has a management committee which is very co-operative and has managed to sustain this rural based primary school up to date. The parents managed to construct a 4 classroom block in 1987 and a 6 classroom block in 1998.

Neither were of a high standard. They were all in a very poor state of repair, no cement on the floors, no plaster on the walls, no windows, no doors, blackboards that are full of holes. All very depressing

Teachers’ houses were a problem, there being 3 blocks of 2 houses, that were seriously dilapidated. There was also a lack of working latrines. This school was desperate for assistance.

All this has changed as a result of construction and renovation projects by HvSMF. The school is now thriving with a very active SMC and PTA, plus the support of the community.
