Nazarene Kamuzinda Vocational High School is a Day and Residential school offering both Ordinary and Advanced levels taking three categories of subjects namely: Science, Arts and Business.
The school was founded in 1994 by Mr. & Mrs. Molly Wasswa and Paul M Wasswa (for Molly and Paul Child Care Foundation) who donated their land that was originally their farm. The first classes were in the Mission House with borrowed desks from the primary school. More support also comes from volunteers and visitors to the school. Although the school is registered by the Ministry of Education, Nazarene still lacks the majority of the basic requirements for a vocational /business high school.
Mrs. Annette Kayiggwa Kunya is the current Principal of the high school for now 4 years. She holds a Bachelor of Science and A Masters Degree in Public Health. She has been at Nazarene for the past 12 years. She is also an Old Girl of Molly and Paul schools. She was the leader of the Southern children’s choir to the UK in 2011. It is the only vocational/community high school in the whole of Kyannamukaaka Sub-county in Masaka District.
Nazarene admits students from our own Molly and Paul Primary schools and the neighboring primary schools in the area plus from other schools in the country. The students are usually aged from 13 years.
The school now is being largely sponsored by the Pearl of Africa Child Care Ltd charity of UK since 2008. Funds are usually raised by the charity when the Pearl of Africa Children’s choir selected from all Molly and Paul schools visits UK every year. A subsidized school fee is paid by those that can afford while orphaned and disadvantaged students are supported with bursaries.
The school is located and found at Kamuzinda village in the children’s village known as The Pearl of Africa Children’s Village on Kyannamukaaka road 3 miles from Bukunda Trading Center which is 12 miles from Masaka Town along Kyotera/Rakai Road. The school also couldn’t provide lunch to the students except those who could afford to pay some money for lunch but special thanks goes to the dedicated volunteers who sponsored the porridge for all the students. The school has a Parents Teacher’s Association (PTA), (This is a local voluntary organization of Parents and teachers that is intended to promote closer relations and improve the school). It is fully active in the school activities.
All the schools accounts are carefully kept after a thorough scrutiny by a dedicated English volunteer and books of accounts are audited every year by an internationally recognized Accounting and Audit Firm.
