This school was started way back in 1915 by the Sisters of the congregation of Our lady of Africa popularly known as the White Sisters. In 1971, the administration of the school was handed over to the African Sisters of congregation of the Immaculate Heart of Mary Reparatrix (Ggogonya), who are still running it.

SCHOOL MOTTOS: ‘PURITY BRINGS HAPPINESS’ AND ‘NO PAIN NO GAIN’.
It located in Wakiso District, 14 miles from Kampala, and 8km from Entebbe International Airport. Our Ordinary is the Archbishop of Kampala Archdiocese.
OBJECTIVES OF THE FOUNDERS:
The major objective for starting such a school was to help the girl child learn how to look after a home and some basics in Catechism. Later on, formal education was considered as an urgent need to the young girls.
The school follows the national curriculum but the major subjects are English, Mathematics, Science Social studies not forgetting that we embrace the thematic curriculum in P.1 to P.3 and transition from P.4. onwards. In addition to that we emphasize co-curricular activities more so the self – reliant projects like gardening, cattle rearing, piggery rabbitary, goats and poultry.
We hope to start on the renovation and extension of the staffroom / main hall
We also hope to renovate the administration block
We always strive for the best results.
