School Links

Over the years links have been forged between Discovery Centre and schools both in Uganda and the U.K. Participation in these links can significantly contribute to a school being awaded the prestigious International Schools Award.

The "flagship" event of these activities in the secondary sector is the JIYM (Jinja International Youth Meeting). This conference has been held at Discovery Centre each year since 2007, drawing staff and sixth-form students from both the U.K. and Uganda.

In the primary sector the focus is on computer skills and creative arts. Discovery Centre has partnered with the U.K. based "Notivate" charity, which provides educational and therapeutic music programmes. It is well established in the U.K. and now growing in Uganda.
