Bukyonza Primary School
This is a very exciting school with an excellent head teacher and a growing enrolment. Academic results are rising, the boarding section is growing in numbers, the teachers are hard working and committed, and the community are very supportive of the school.
At some stage, hopefully during 2013, we would like to provide 4 new teachers’ houses and 4 teachers’ latrines and washrooms. In order to keep good teachers there must be enough houses, otherwise they are wasting many valuable hours walking to and from their home. The school also needs a 20,000 litre water tank and 8 x girls’ latrines. The girls’ present latrines are full and unhygienic, whilst the teachers share 2 stanzas for themselves and their families with no washing facilities. The school also lacks sufficient desks, half the pupils have to sit on the ground, which is certainly not conducive to learning.
The school has a large kitchen garden where it tries to grow maize etc in order to supplement the children’s lunch but, often due to the drought, plants do not survive. This is a hardworking school and we really want to support it in the near future.
Head Teacher: Mrs Joyce Ndimukika
Number of pupils March 2012: 1038
