Kifuyo Secondary School

Kifuyo Secondary SignNumber of pupils : 952 (496 boys & 456 girls)

School Motto :  Commitment yields success.

Kifuyo Secondary School is located in the very poor Namayingo district.  It is the only secondary school in the sub-county for 15 miles.  It started as a church project in 2008 and a 4 acre site was donated by St John’s Chapel, Buyinja Sub County.  Secondary education is vital and the 30 mile round trip deters many students from completing their education. When we arrived at the school in early 2008, the only classroom for the 20 students was a temporary structure, of some tarpaulin supported by wooden poles

The school has gone from strength to strength under the present head teacher, Moses Namisi, who arrive in 2016 when there were 310 students, this has now risen to 952.  The school offers excellent facilities for both the students and teachers.  Of the 28 teachers, 16 live on site and enjoy HvSMF constructed houses and hygienic latrines and washrooms.  This makes it easier to retain and recruit good teaching staff.

In July 2017 the school became part of the Government Grant Aided (GGA) scheme.  The government is slowly (100 schools per annum) rolling out a scheme to take over one government school in each subcounty, as recommended by the subcounty local government.   Grant aid is for the provision of teachers wages and students capitation grants but does not include development of infrastructure.  Thus the school still needs donations from elsewhere.  The school is now able to offer O’levels and A level’s.

Following the many donations over the past years, in particular 2019, we are hoping to see an even greater enrolment increase and further improvement in their exam results.
