BIshop nzerebende primary school
Bishop Nzerebende Primary School was founded by Rt. Rev. Bishop Nzerebende and his family members in 2008 when construction work commenced under an umbrella organization ‘Fighting Poverty with Hands Initiative-Uganda (FIPHAI-Uganda)’. The school officially opened gates for staff recruitment and admission of learners on January 31, 2011 with classes from nursery to primary five. The initial classes subsequently progressed and the first batch of primary seven candidates graduated in 2013, followed by a second one in 2014; both achieving over 90% success in Primary Leaving Examinations (PLE). The school is registered with the Ministry of Education, Science and Technology under the government of Uganda.
