Primary Curriculum

Welcome to our Primary Section

We have a boarding section for children who come from distant destinations. Currently we have over 300 pupils in the boarding section with the rest in day school. Our boarding facilities are unrivaled within Uganda and we are not shy to say that we are the best boarding school in Uganda.

Good feeding, care for children and cleanliness make us stand out and therefore a preferred destination for most parents and children.

On payment of fees, the school provides the following to the boarders: Laundry and basins, out of class uniforms, text books, exercise books, pens and pencils, beds, mattresses, plates, cups and cutlery, first aid, insurance, maintenance, Identity cards & swimming.

Parents on their part provide the following to their children: Two pairs of bed sheets and a blanket, two plain maroon T- shirts, a plastic mattress cover in case of bed wetting, canvass shoes for P.E with white ankle socks (for girls) & long ones for boys, School bag, School shoes (black), towel, bathing soap, slippers and flat or open shoes, shoe polish, tooth paste and tooth brush, Vaseline, night garments, suitcase (not metallic). Other personal effects e.g. face towels, bathing sponge, pants, pant peg, nail cutter etc., swimming costume, fountain pens with ink pots or cartridges for P.4- P.7 and a ream of photocopying paper for P.6-P.7.

After accomplishing their remaining mixed work and other extra work, pupils go to games of their interest. We also have educative & entertaining programmes on DSTV that they watch.

On Sundays all children go to their respective churches i.e. Anglican, Catholics, Pentecostals save for the Muslims who always go for Juma prayers on Fridays.
