Bukyonda Primary School
Number of pupils : 506 (231 boys & 275 girls)
School Motto : We strive for prominence
Bukyonda Primary School started in the early 1980s in Kamuli district under the management of the Bukyonda community. Later, in 1997, at the inception of Universal Primary Education (UPE), the school was taken over by the government and 4 teachers were posted to run the school.
In 2001 the School Management Committee (SMC), together with the community, managed to secure 2 acres of land - it is a long and thin plot - to settle the school permanently. In 2002 the government constructed a 2 classroom block, to include a head teacher's office and storeroom, and a 5 stanza latrine. Later in 2010 they added a further 5 stanza latrine to maintain proper hygiene for the ever increasing pupil enrolment.
The head teacher is very enthusiastic. She has the backing of the local community, the PTA and a strong and committed SMC as well as her loyal teachers. Robert Mukisa, the neighbouring head teacher from Bupadhengo Secondary School, where the majority of leavers from Bukyonda Primary School go in order to continue their education, is particularly helpful. In total there are 506 pupils with 12 qualified teachers, all on the government payroll.
