WATER SUPPLIED TO ST. KONRAD INSTITUTE

Source of Water

             Water from Water Well to the School

Water Supply to St. Konrad Integrated Vocational School/Institute was a big problem since the institute’s inception in 2008. A bigger project to run by solar had been designed to supply water both to the school and the neighbouring villages. Unfortunately, no money could be found to realise this dream. The School installed some water tanks to harvest rain water but this was not always enough given the increase in enrolment and the dry season stretching from June to August. Students had to fetch water to natural wells a distant off.

The green light to a solution at least for the School came with the extending of Rural Electrification Project right to the School in 2018-2019. Early 2019 this power supply line war commissioned and power could be utilised not only in School but also for other uses. With support from Friends, a water well was constructed opposite the school and water from this well is now pumped to school.  The only challenge is that electricity is unstable and therefore can not assure constant supply of water. There is need to have a standby small generator at the well. But the School community is very grateful to the Government of Uganda for the Power Supply and to all the benefactors who sponsored the well project.

Full Registration as a Vocational Institute

                      Registered as an Integrated Vocational Institute

 

 

St.Konrad Integrated Vocational School is an integrated School comprising of Technical/Vocational Training and Secondary school Training. The Technical/Vocational Training has run for several years on a Licence TVET 121. In March 2019, St. Konrad was fully registered with particulars MOES/BTVET/230  and raised to the level of Vocational Institute to fully run seven courses. These include Building and Concrete Practice, Tailoring and Garment Cutting, Welding and Metal Fabrication, Plumbing, Electricity Installation, and Agriculture.

This registration came about after certifying the Ministry of Education Basic Requirements which include Staffing, Infrastructure, tools and Enrolment.

Now our School and Institute is formally constituted to train young people after Primary Seven in Secondary School and Junior Technical School Training and to enrol Ordinary and HSC Leavers in Craft Certificate Training.

We are grateful to all stake holders for having achieved this goal. So St. Konrad Integrated Vocational School is also a Vocation Institute.
