About Saint Thomas

 

He was an apostle. He was ready to die with Jesus when Christ went to Jerusalem, but is best remembered for doubting the Resurrection until allowed to touch Christ’s wounds. Preached in Parthia and India, through he was so reluctant to start the mission that he had to be taken into slavery by a merchant headed that way. He eventually gave into God’s will, was freed, and planted the new Church over a wide area. He formed many parishes and built many churches along the way. His symbol is the builder’s square, from an ancient story that built a place for King Guduphara in India. He was stabbed with a spear in 72A.D, in India.

About the School

St Thomas is a Consolata Missionaries founded and parent owned primary school which was erected within the heart of Bweyogerere Town, under the protection of our Lady Consolata, Bweyogerere Catholic Parish.

Consolata Fathers, who had first arrived in Uganda in 1985 at the kind invitation of Kampala Archdiocesan priests Association, acronym KAPA on evangelical Christ Mission, had responded fast to the communities’ priorities request for a primary school construction. Thomas Bazitya (RIP), one of the Christian who had earlier allotted part of his land where the school now stands, chose St. Thomas the apostle, as the patron saint with a combination of Bazadde meaning parents in Luganda language, St Thomas Bazadde primary school became more of parent owned than believing a church supported project.

The tripartite dialogue between the parents, the Archdiocesan priests and Consolata Missionaries, represented by Rev.Fr. Louis Barabante (RIP) unanimously approved St Thomas School project started with immediate effect. The pioneer management Team chose, “No Pain, No Gain” as the foundation motto to inculcate among both teachers and pupils that spiritual building of the nation was reflected under this institutional message; and no gain is achieved on the silver plate.
Today, parents are proud to see St Thomas Bazadde primary school is now on the right path both to development and academic. Since its inception, first grade always being received were not exceeding six. At the advent of 2010 as the benchmark changes started occurring. The number of the first and second grades, geometrically began rising, now St Thomas Bazadde primary school is among the best performers in Wakiso District. The exceptional performance gave rise to the Ministry of Education and Sports to approve a request for emergency assistance to erect two classrooms blocks to mitigate the number of pupils being offered addition under the framework of government plans for the Universal Primary Education (UPE).
