St. Anne – Ggoli Primary School

BACKGROUND INFROMATION:

St. Anne was founded in 1948 by an indigenous Institute of the sisters of the Immaculate Heart of Mary Reparatrix-Ggogonya with an intention of teaching catechism, reading, arithmetic, Luganda, writing and general hygiene to especially a girl child who during that time had less chances of going to school. As time went on the primary curriculum was changed and more subject were included in the syllabus like social studies, science, mathematics, Religions Education, physical Education, and today Swahili is inclusive as a language of study.
