Transferring the children to the other new campus might not work instead afew will go to that school while we expect to get new students from that neighborhood of Rukoki. Plans are under way in some months ahead after completing the classrooms to look into ways of putting up hostels so that some children affording to board can move with us at the new school.

Any idea of a secondary school

  1. Does KHPS have plans to open up a secondary school

    Yes, the management of Kasese United Humanist Association has plans to initiate a secondary school in some years ahead.b A humanist secondary school is very vital in western Uganda. Owing to the land size of the KHPS property provisions are there that classrooms to house the secondary school can still be accomodated on this site.

    Also Kasese United Humanist Association has several sites where we can erect a secondary school but still lacks the financial capability to erect classrooms. Any serious investor interested in uplifting the Uganda education is open to work hand in hand and we create more schools in several parts across the district.
