A real success story
These two girls came to our school from the age of six. They both did very well in their primary leaving exams and both achieved Grade 1. They then went on to secondary school where they again did very well and are presently doing teacher training.
They are now (2015) doing teaching practice at our school. They qualify next year and would like to return to teach at our school!

The children of Bunabutye near Mbale in Uganda
The children are mainly orphaned or living with extended families in very poor living conditions.
In October 1993, the school was a mud hut where the children sat on logs on the floor and used corrugated tin sheeting for a blackboard. The teachers were unqualified.
There was no drinking water in the village, and as a result of this, many died of cholera and dysentery from drinking the river water. The nearest fresh water pump was 7 miles away.
Today – 2011 – the situation for the children of Bunabutye, has changed dramatically. Thanks to numerous donations from people in Wales and the UK, the school is providing education for 360 pupils. In last year’s exams for entry to secondary school, the lowest pupil in our school did better then the best pupil in all the surrounding schools.
