Houses are the nine dormitories where students reside. Each of them is named after an important person in the history of the school. These houses are Brewer, Coates, Hannington, Nabikamba, Nadiope, Presidents, Wako, Willis and Wilson. Every house is identified by a logo and distinct colour. Continuing students and the old boys are strongly attached to them. The true house spirit is exhibited when it comes to inter-house competitions in various events like, games and sports, music, dance and drama, quizzes, and “Kamoolo”. “Kamoolo” refers to end of year house party. It was coined from the phrase “Come All”. House parties (obumoolo) are celebrated at the end of every year around October shortly before S4 and S6 candidates sit their final national examinations. That day is real fun!

Welcome to Brewer Paradise

Message from the House Mistress

I greet you in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. It is a pleasure to share with you something concerning Brewer Paradise. Travel with me to Brewer Paradise.

Brewer House got its name from Rev. Alexander Harry Brewer from Australia. He was a Headmaster of Balangira High School from 1920-1930. He recommended that the school be transferred to the current site at Mwiri hill.

For many years, Brewer has been the cleanest house and a house of intellectuals that has produced important persons in the country like Dr. Ruhakana Rugunda the Prime Minister of Uganda, Hon. Paul Etyang former Deputy Prime Minister, Prof. Bakwesegha Vice Chancellor Busoga University, Dr. F. F. Tusubira Educationist, Dr. Patrick Ibembe President Mwiri Old Boys Association (MOBA), Mr. Daudi Wakudumira former mayor Jinja Municipality, etc.

Brewer has had hardworking and committed house masters like Mr. Mwesigwa Martin known to many who went through the school. Brewer House has had male house teachers all through. However, 2016 saw a change in the history of the house when Brewer house received a female house teacher Mrs. Namwase Loy Palaasi.

I acknowledge that it’s very hard to fit into ones shoes but I must also say that we have managed to maintain the standards of the house with the support of the house leadership and the students’ cooperation.

Brewer House has had continuous support from the Old Boys right from Kamolo (House Party) to renovation of the house, the recent being the renovation done in 2018.

We appreciate all those who have contributed generously. May the Almighty God continue blessing the works of your hands. In the paradise of Brewer, we serve to be served.

Dear Guest, I greet you in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. Coates House was added to the school in 1980’s. It was named after Rev. F G ‘Jack’ Coates (HM 1943-65) who arrived at Mwiri with the Church Missionary Society in 1934. He was Longest serving HM.

Let me as well take this opportunity to thank the Lord who enabled us to emerge the winners of the Inter-House Sports Championship bull last year in 2019.
