To equip students with the mental, spiritual social and physical skills which enable them to become future citizens and competent people in the third millennium.
BACKGROUND OF THE SCHOOL
St. Martin Jjanya Secondary School was founded in 1988 by the Catholic Parish Mpigi to provide high quality education and to promote evangelization (Christian life) in the parish.
The school is manned by the Board of Governors nominated by the education office Lubaga Kampala Archdiocese. At the same time the parents elect the executive as P.T.A executive members who monitor the running of the school on a local level. All these parties get authority from Kampala Archdiocese which is the foundation body.
St. Martin is staffed with competent and well qualified staffs who handle the students in the spiritual, academic, human and moral formation of the students. Students also participate in the management of the school through a democratic elected prefect’s body.
ORPHANS, STREET CHILDREN STUDY SCHEME
Of recent, we have patterned with an organization from Germany called Uganda Kinderhilfe (UKIHI) which is assisting the orphans and former street children. We have successfully integrated them into our students and they are well reasonable behavior. This year, one of the orphans joined Kyambogo University and he is doing well.
The street children were converted to normal children and they are happy living in St. Martin because of the following.
i) Adequate personal effects given to them by our friends in Germany (UKIHI).
