School Motto :  Struggle for Success

This school was typical of many schools in Uganda that are struggling to achieve with facilities that make their mission nearly impossible.  The school is situated on a 10 acre site in Kamuli District and it is one of the worst schools within the district with regard to infrastructure.  It is close to other HvSMF schools and it’s leavers feed into Bupadhengo Secondary School and Nawanyago College.

Their challenges were enormous and, when we first arrived in 2011, there was a serious amount of in-fighting.   Thankfully, in June 2013, Mrs Florence Birungi was transferred to the school and she had the support of the SMC and PTA.

Florence wrote, in her report to me:  “I was handed over this school on 20th June 2013 but I had feared to come because of the wrangles which existed among the 3 categories of people – the head teacher and staff, the parents and the community.  I later prayed to the Almighty God to empower me with the capacity to calm down that hot and dusty situation, so as to concentrate on what could benefit our children and indeed God listened to my prayers and granted peace upon everybody.  As I talk now we are in harmony.

Florence retired in December 2017 and now Moses Peduno is the head master.  As a result of various generous donations, HvSMF has been able to transform this school so that the 731 pupils now have their lessons in renovated classrooms with walls, floors, roofs that don’t leak and blackboards with no holes!  They have also recently received a bore hole and an East African Playground, both of which encourage the children to attend the school.  We hope to see some improved results and a larger enrolment over the next few years.
