Altitude National Sports Training Centre Facing Eviction

Teryet High Altitude Secondary School in Tereyet Sub County in Kapchorwa district is facing eviction from the land earmarked to host Tereyet High Altitude National Sports training centre.

The government-aided school with three classes operating in temporary structures was established by the community in 2015. It is the only secondary school in the green belt of Kapchorwa serving the entire upper belt area.

Students have to trek for over 15 kilometres to get to the nearest privately owned Elgon Emirates Secondary School. Teryet High Altitude Secondary School is currently hosted by a primary school, which is part of Teryet High Altitude National Sports Training Centre project.

Alfred Tunde Musau, the Kapchorwa District Sports Administrator, says the secondary school wasn’t part of the project.

He says it currently occupies space meant the swimming pool and hostels among other facilities. He says the district and well-wishers have launched a fundraising drive to secure over Shillings 100 Million needed to procure 5 acres of land for the school.


Justine Yapsoyekwo, the headteacher Teryet High Altitude Secondary School, says they currently have nowhere to go once evicted from their current location. She says the Education and Sports Ministry has already promised to construction for the school classroom blocks once they secure land.
