St Nicholas of Tolentine Catholic Primary School

Where charity and love are, God is there


Uganda Link 


St. Nicholas of Tolentine RC Primary School is partnered with St. Peter’s Rubuguri Primary School in Kisoro, Uganda. 


St. Peter’s Rubuguri Primary School 


St. Peter’s Rubuguri Primary School is located in Rubuguri, in the Kisoro district of SW Uganda.  It is located in the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park.  It is here that mountain gorillas are found.  

The School is a Catholic school. There are 784 children at the school, divided into seven classes.  

The school has particular strengths in music and dance and drama. 


The aim of our partnership is for teachers and children at our two schools to work collaboratively on cross-curricular projects with global themes.  


Our school is in receipt of a ‘Connecting Classrooms’ grant from the British Council, to fund the visit of a teacher from our school to visit St. Peter’s Rubuguri Primary School in Uganda and vice versa, to develop our partnership and projects.


This term, children at our two schools are involved a gardening project.

Check out our photos below!




Year 1






Emerald Class have sown peas and nasturtiums. Soon we will plant them out in the school allotment and make a structure for them to grow up. We also designed bug hotels!


Year 2

Children in Year 2 used plastic bottles to make plant pots to plant seeds in.  

Here are some of our Year 2 children with their painted plant pots.





We filled our pots with compost and planted sunflower seeds.  Now we're waiting for our seeds to grow!  


Our Year 5 and 6 children created an allotment on an area of grass in our school.  Planters have been made for each class from wood and old tyres.


Our Year 2 children are filling their planter with compost, ready to plant seeds.





Each day we are learning more about gardening.  Today we learnt how to use gardening tools - a wheelbarrow, spades, trowels and rakes!
