Welfare and Catering services

The school has a kitchen with professional staff that understand the importance of healthy meals. All meals are served in the dining Hall where each child gets three meals per day - breakfast, lunch and dinner. KIS strives to provide a balanced diet, which comprises of a range of hot meals, cold (options can be arranged with kitchen staff) and a helping of fruits.

There is also a well-stocked canteen with healthy options and creature comforts for our pupils. It also stocks some house keeping essentials in case boarders need to replenish personal supplies before the next scheduled visitation dates.

Medical Care

A qualified school nurse looks after the pupils and is always available should a medical emergency arise. She also offers advice on health and nutrition, as well as arranging for first hospital appointments and appointments if required.

Pupils with more complicated and serious medical conditions are referred to the nearby Iganga Health Centre II, which is just next-door. The other option we have is Iganga District Hospital, which is 5mins away from the school.

We have staff qualified to give first aid at work. They are known to all and are readily available.

Boarding Facilities

The school has a boarding wing for our students who decide to stay at school. We have provision for two categories of boarders, Full-time and part-time boarders.

Full-time boarders stay with us for the whole term, while the part-time boarders are with us Monday to Friday. They go home for the weekend and return the following Monday. The part-time option may not suit everyone, for more information on this subject; speak to someone in admission for details. To contact us about this click here.

Boys and girls have separate boarding wings each with a resident matron who ensures that they a safe, happy and content.
