Kifuyo Secondary School

Kifuyo Secondary SignNumber of pupils : 1244 (687 boys & 557 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.

Now the school also 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.

The school went from strength to strength under the previous head teacher, Moses Namisi, who arrived as a young man in 2016 when there were 310 students to now when there are 1244 students.  He transformed the school to what it is today. He was an inspirational head teacher.  Tragically Moses died of a cardiac arrest in May 2023 leaving a young widow with small children.  The school is continuing to look after and educate his children as his widow has been left with no income.  He will be truly missed by everyone involved with the school.

His deputy, Isaac Olumbe, has become the head teacher, having recently graduated with a masters degree in Education.  This is now a requirement for head teachers of secondary schools.  He was chosen by the Board of Governors and has the support of the school and community which was obvious when we visited in February 2024.  We wish him the very best in the future and hope the school enrolment and exam results continue to grow.  This has proved to be an exceptional HvSMF school and in total we have donated £163,442 towards establishing it.
