Holy Rosary Primary School
We arrived in Gulu late Thursday night from Kampala, and started our school visits the next morning after visiting the requisite government officials. The headmaster of Holy Rosary, Okot Gabriella Nyatho, met us very graciously and was very helpful and responsive. Holy Rosary is one of our only schools actually located in Gulu Town, and, as such, has access to more resources and services than our more remote schools. Holy Rosary is actually a very large public school, with almost 40 staff members and 21 classrooms spread out over several buildings. Somehow, the school has managed to acquire a good number of textbooks, but unfortunately, they don’t have any book cases, so the books are just stacked up in boxes and are difficult to access. Their primary request was for donations to purchase book cases (generally about $50 per tall bookcase, handmade and delivered by a local carpenter).
