We have expanded our area of operation due to the increasing support of our parents, and we promise we shall continue adding on new areas of operations as the funds and conditions allow.

Standby power generator
We have upgraded from using steam lanterns in 2001 to using a 24 hour standby generator. This eases our day to day prep and night activities since we do not have to worry about power black outs.

The entertainment unit of the school is developing. We now have two mounted televisions in the multi purpose dining hall which are connected to pay TV to supplement other forms of entertainment. We have a state of the art music system which we also use for public address.

Meals
The school has a menu that it follows religiously although at times when there is a celebration or major function appropriate meals are served. The staple dishes are Posho (maize flour bread) and rice served with beans. However, in a week, learners are served with meat twice (on Wednesday and Sunday). The main breakfast and morning break meals are black tea and soya porridge but children are also served with milk and maize porridge on Fridays and Saturdays. Fruits are common feature on Sundays and Mondays as are greens. Chicken, mashed bananas (matooke) and eggs are served as special meals once in a term.

All meals are served to children from the school’s Multi purpose Dining Hall according to classes while all teachers have their meals from the staffroom.

Water and sanitation
The school is provided with water by National Water and Sewarage Cooperation (Kajjansi) for use. We have ample storage tanks to take us through tough periods when taps run dry.

All drinking water in filtered and sanitised using two Ultra Violet Light Ray Machines which are each fitted on a separate 2000 litre capacity tank. Children have full access to drinking water at the kitchen 24 hours a day.

We have water borne toilets in the school for both learners and teacher. Each gender has its separate facilities both for times when they are in class and out of class (All dormitories have attached water closets on them.

The Bathrooms are spacious and tiled for easy cleaning. Each gender has its own set of bathrooms and according to age. The very young ones ususally use the bathrooms attached to the dormitories for close monitoring by the matrons.

All cleaning work is done by full time cleaners (and matrons).

For general cleaning (excluding washing), all water used for scrubbing of the compound, toilets and bathrooms is pumped underground water. This water has its own supply line and tank (it is not connected to water for kitchen use, bathing and washing of clothes).

Religious affairs.
Since inception, the school has been emphasising the praise and worship in the three major religious denominations i.e. Catholics, Anglicans and Muslims.

The Muslims have resident Sheikh who conducts the daily mandatory five swalas, Juma and madarasa for both resident and non resident pupils. Our learners participate in the annual Ramadhan activities such as fasting and celebrating Idd. All Idds are festivities at school and the official animal for slaughtering by the school community is always available for Idd Adhuha. Often times we have other sheikhs and sheikats visiting to check on progress of learners in their faith.

The Anglicans always have Sunday service at St. Apollo Kivebulaya Church of Uganda Sseguku led by the area Lay Reader and our learners lead the choir in the 9:00 o’clock service (The Church is just 300 metres away from the school fence). Catechism classes for confirmation are conducted at school annually (or according to communication sent out in the termly circulars). Confirmation of our pupils (men and women of the Church) is carried out annually at school. We have had Reverends, cannons and Bishops visiting the school regularly.

The Catholics always have Holy Mass celebrated at school every Sunday led by visiting Priests assigned to us through St. Joseph Catholic Parish Lweza. Our pupils regularly visit the Church (which is about one kilometer along Entebbe Highway) to lead Liturgy and make offertory on behalf of the school. All Catechism classes for all sacraments are conducted at school and thus each year children receive Baptism, First Holy Communion and Confirmation. Confirmation is always carried received from St. Joseph Catholic Parish Church Lweza. Pupils also make a last commitment vow to adhere to the teachings of the Church without faltering.

For all Christians as it is with all Muslims in relation to Idd days, Easter days are a major festivity at school annually.

Security
This is a major driving factor in the school, the school ensures that security lights are on all the time and all gates are manned by full time security personnel. The whole school is under full surveillance of Closed Circuit security cameras (CCTV) which are also monitored 24 hours by trained personnel. The internal security team comprise of six well trained guards – three manning day time activities and three managing night time activities. We also engage the Uganda Police Force in the security of our school more especially at night and during times when we have festivities/major functions that involve quite a number of non staff/non pupils.

It is incumbent upon us to ensure safety of all children under our care and thus we limit visitation to children. Anybody wishing to visit children in the boarding section are expected carry with them the children’ identity card as well as their personal identity cards. No one is supposed to take a child out of school unless all proper identification procedures have been satisfied.

Class rooms
Our classrooms are enough and spacious. They have enough furniture for all learners and their teachers. They have sufficient lighting to enable learners and teachers conduct lessons/learning even during ours when natural light is deem/dark. They are also furnished with shelves for keeping learners’ books and files, and cupboards for keeping class materials. Sitting capacity is 54 pupils maximum and where there is a spill over, a new stream is created to ease interaction among learners and between learners and teachers.
