During a fundraising event aimed at constructing staff quarters at the school, Mr. Leonard Monday, the head teacher, addressed the audience. He highlighted that the six classrooms, which were constructed by the Diocese of Kasese over two decades ago, now show signs of structural deterioration, posing a potential risk to the safety of the learners. In light of this situation, Mr. Monday called for immediate action from both Kasese district’s local government and the community.

Mr. Hudson Musali, the chairperson of the local council for area three, emphasized the necessity of collaboration between the founding entity, the community, and parents to address the infrastructure challenges at the school. He revealed that they had already communicated the difficulties to the Ministry of Education.

Responding to these concerns, Mr. Eriphaz Muhindi, the chairperson of Kasese district’s local council five, disclosed that he had submitted a list of schools in dire need, including Kihyo and Kathembo Primary Schools, to the Ministry of Education and Sports.

During an earlier mass, Rev. Fr. Godwin Bwambale, the Curate for Kitswamba Parish, urged the congregation not to adopt a negative attitude but rather to acknowledge their shortcomings as a path toward positive change.

An impressive amount of over four million shillings was raised to support the construction project for staff quarters.
