Headteacher's Message

Welcome to Kyambogo College School virtual home. I am glad that this website is up and functioning.

The 66 years of the school’s existence put us in the category of “traditional schools” in Uganda. Traditional schools were founded in the early years after the introduction of education by the missionaries and over the years have continued to offer holistic education. They continue to be spaces where continuous nurturing of the young generation takes place.

Message from the Red Cross Patron

The promotion of holistic education in a school call for the learners to be engaged in various life skills activities and among which we have the Red Cross Society which empowers them with lifesaving skills and first aid management. The life skills knowledge helps the learners be endowed with the right attitudes and perception of true survival in the world of diversity as they do appreciate the daily challenges faced.

The Red Cross highly thrives on the principles of Humanity, impartiality, neutrality, independence, voluntary service, unity and universality: these seven Fundamental Principles sum up the Movement’s ethics and are at the core of its approach to helping people in need during armed conflict, natural disasters and other emergencies.

PRC Chairman Richard Gordon reiterated the importance of the organization’s 4Ps principle—Predict, Plan, Prepare, Practice—to uphold the safety of every family.

It is therefore important to be known that in the development of an all-round child in the holistic education system, the learners should be taught the essence of proper planning, appropriate preparation and masterly of good practices of life so as to survive in this world of diversity.

Clarification on Term One 2024 Fees Structure at Kyambogo College School

In response to recent discussions stemming from partial school circulars shared online, Kyambogo College School aims to clarify the 2024 term one fees structure.

Contrary to social media claims, there was no arbitrary fee increase. Over the years, fees in term one have consistently been higher than in the second and third terms due to items paid once a year, such as Uneb registration, PTA Subscription, Students’ attendance swiping card, Calendar, and Magazine.

It’s essential to note that the only new fee included in the structure for the year 2024 is the Kyambogo College School Platinum celebration of Ug shs 50,000/=, as agreed upon in the Annual General Parent’s meeting to be paid in term one and two 2024.

Kyambogo College School is a government school with some staff on the government payroll; however, it differs from USE schools – relying on supplementary fees for certain operational costs, meals, and developments.

We appreciate public feedback and are committed to transparency. For inquiries or additional information, please contact the school administration. We value your understanding and continued support in ensuring each student receives the best possible education at Kyambogo College School.

Sincerely,

Mugume Stanley,
Headteacher
