Buhinga’s Grounds

The first thing you notice on the way into the school is the uneven path flanked either side by barbed wire, which we were surprised to see use extensively throughout the school grounds (a clear health risk bearing in mind the age of the pupils). The buildings are all basic and not one of them has a complete pane of glass, instead most have jagged shards of glass where the windows used to be.

The school is a collection of teaching buildings and an assembly hall loosely centered around a courtyard. Perhaps the best thing about the site is the field behind the teaching buildings for the children to play in at break time, which about the size of a football pitch (this may sound big but imagine 1600 kids playing on it at once).
