Kayenje Primary School.

Background:
Kayenje C/U is a government funded school in Butambala Distirct, central Uganda. The school
was founded in 1903 as a church founded school by the Christians of the area to in still
Christian values among children of the area. Over time, we have developed into a school for
children of all faiths and we have been commended as being one of the most diverse schools in
the district.
Kayenje C/U currently has registered an increase in enrolment from 758 to 978 pupils who are
served by 12 qualified teachers and the ratio teacher pupil is 1:82. This is where there is need to
have support in managing these big numbers of pupils for them to achieve quality education and
relevance. Both pupils and staff believe in our motto 'Work for Progress', whereby working cohesively, we will be able to see a progression in the lives of the children within our
community.

Kayenje C/U is defined by characteristics of motivation, character and diversity. We have
proven to be more motivated than ever, tremendous achieved started in 2012 Primary Leaving Examination (PLE) results. Not only is the school diverse in their staff and pupils, but we have
also shown diversity in our curriculum. Kayenje C/U is known in Butambala as one of the
leading arts and sports primary schools.
The last few years at Kayenje C/U have been extremely exciting with the development of
relationships with NGOs such as Uganda Voluntary Development Association Project
Trust, Just a Drop, The Anchor Foundation, Edinburgh Development Group and 4-H Million
Trees Project. We would like to send our gratitude to these organisations for the fantastic work
they have done within our school and the wider community. Nevertheless, we at Kayenje
believe that future is more important than the past and we must strive in whatever way possible
to continue our fantastic development. The path to progress is not always simple, but by staying
determined and united we can achieve great things for the children of Kayenje.
