St. Maria Gorret Senior Secondary School Katende (SMAGOK) is a Ugandan mixed Catholic-founded school, located in Mpigi (P.O. Box 5 Mpigi), Mpigi District in the Central Region.[citation needed]


The school is located in Katende, Central Region, off Masaka-Kampala road on the Katende Hill, about 200 meters from the Highway.[citation needed]


The school was founded as a private church-founded school in 1966 by the late Rev Fr. Ndiwalana. Unfortunately, due to indiscipline, the school closed immediately and was reopened in January 1967.[citation needed] When Fr. Ndiwalana was transferred to Mulajje Parish, Msgr. Charles Kato took the responsibility of directing and controlling the development of the school. He worked very closely with Mr. Mukiibi, who was school's bursar for 23 years.[citation needed]

The school was occupied by soldiers and looted in the 1979 war (Uganda–Tanzania War). In 1982, Fr. Joseph Kijjambu made attempts to re-stock it, but, unfortunately, from January 1985 to January 1986, soldiers again occupied the school, and once again the school was looted of its painfully acquired assets.

The school then became grant-aided in September 1984 with Mr Kyasanku Charles being the first head teacher to be posted by the Ministry of Education. Mr. Kato, the second government-employed head teacher took over from Mr. Kyansaku in 1986 and left at the end of 2003. The school was then headed by Regina Laboke (Mrs) till 2011. Of recent it is among the middle performing schools.[1]
