Thirty-four former Kisa PS students organized a celebration at the school on November 17. School director Irene Kibukka usually wants to know where the children she helps go after graduating from Kisa primary school. So she called them to know how they are doing with life outside.
The celebration started with a parade around Nansana town being led by a band and joined in by all our students. We marched from Kisa primary school moving around the village localities up to the main road. Then we came back to school where some of the current students gave presentations about what they were learning in class.
Later, the Old Students (as they are called) told the current students about their jobs and lives today, and the importance of the education they received at Kisa. The Old Students all promised to help Kisa Primary School in the future to make sure the school can continue to provide good education for children from even the poorest families. Many of the Old Students were orphans and praised Madame Irene and Kisa School for helping them raise themselves out of poverty.
Some of the old students who attended were Najjuko Shanitah a secondary school teacher at WAKISO Muslim SSS; Nambatya Latifah working in Dubai; Namuyanja Angella a procurement officer at Rosefoam Mattress; Nalika Agatha who works with Kampala Police; Galabuzi Enock a secondary teacher at Masaka Hope SSS; Nakandi Shirat, Onyango Kelly, Kagezi Alex, Zalwango Catherine, Nalukwago Jane, Namata Immaculate among others.
The oldest old student was Namuyanja Angella who works at Rosefoam Mattresses as a procurement officer. She was adopted by Madame Irene and started at Kisa PS in 1998.
At the end of the day, we all felt a great sense of pride in our school and what has been accomplished over the years.
