St Stephen Nawanyago Primary School

Number of pupils :  1211 (573 boys & 638 girls)

This is a typical rural primary school. In 2007 St Stephen had only four classrooms. The remaining children had their lessons in a makeshift mud structure. We completed a new four classroom block, plus desks, in January 2008, ready for the beginning of the school year. In October 2008 a student achieved grades that placed him in the top two of all primary leavers in the Kamuli district. This is proof that investment in new classrooms can have an immediate and striking result.

In March 2009 the head teacher, Mr Moses Aliza, said “We are very grateful to the Henry van Straubenzee Memorial Fund for all of the support they have given to us in the last two years.  We now have the infrastructure we need to deliver good quality education to our children. May God bless all of the donors who have supported our school”.  This head teacher has remained at the school since we first visited in 2008.

During 2017 HvSMF provided substantial support to this school. The new facilities have greatly assisted the success of their Primary Leaving Examinations and the school continually performs outstandingly. An increase in enrolment is not possible due to the size of the school compound. We wish the school and all its pupils every success in the future.
