This secondary school is located several hours away from Bwindi in the same District of Kanugu, near the town of Kambuga. Bishop Comboni offers both “O” and “A” Level courses and for that reason is described as a college. Our main use of this impressive campus is for “O” Levels (S1-S4, the equivalent of high school) with some students attending “A” Levels (S5 and S6). In 2016, a Bishop Comboni student sponsored by BCP had the highest UCE score (S4 national testing) in the SW Region and tied with one other student for the top score in the entire Western Region. An exciting achievement!

Bishop Comboni Library
The campus is a large area of rolling hills and invites studying outside under the trees. It was built by the Catholic Church and given to the local community in 1980.

The current enrollment of about 550 students is complemented by 60 teachers and support staff, all overseen by a very dynamic headmaster. It considers itself non-denominational. All students board on campus because it offers the best possible learning situation.

Bishop Comboni is strong academically while providing a nurturing environment for the sponsored students. The
BCP students are a small part of the student body and have found a warm welcome here. They learn to live in a larger community and expand their future aspirations beyond the scope of their original village.

BCP has endowed a position of Counselor at the school. The role of Counselor is to assist students in making the best choices for their futures. To have a “wise friend” on campus is crucial when problems arise.
Girls at BCC
The parental support and involvement in the direction of the school makes it unique. The parents recently provided all the labor to install rainwater collection gutters and storage tanks when BCP raised funds for the materials. They are building a new classroom building.
Computer Lab

The campus is a beehive of activity. The new Science Lab Building is scheduled for completion in early 2017 and will house Chemistry, Biology, Physics and Agriculture Labs. A computer lab was opened in 2013.

New housing for teachers and staff is under construction; making it more attractive for good teachers to stay at this rural school.
There are clubs, sports and field trips. One of the clubs, the Interact Club (a youth Rotary group) is installing water filtration, not only on campus but also in the surrounding village. The filters were donated by Water4Life and shipped to Uganda by BCP.
