Second academic year 2015

A Word from the H/Teacher
 Mr. Asiimwe Innocent.

This new term began on 15th may 2015. The term began well because children, teachers and all non teaching staffs reported in time. Here is the head teacher’s comment about the opening of the new term; The term began on15/5/2015 and half of the pupils were registered and the rest of the learners reported on18/5/2015. The reporting was fairly good because the turn up of pupils and staff members was ok.  As a head teacher of the school, I was very with my fellow teachers who reported in time and very ready to perform their duties. I pray that can end well as it has started God being our helper. All children are also happy of the new term, they reported in time to read hard for the better grade at the end of the term. From primary five to primary seven pupils, they have had a challenge of losing their Mathematics teacher. Their former Mathematics teacher called teacher Joseph has resigned to work as a teacher at our school which has made some of the pupils get worried, pupils are praying for the new teacher to also be good like how teacher Joseph has been. Teacher Joseph has gone by his will.
This is Mr. Medard, our new Mathematics teacher
The new Mathematics teacher is called teacher Medad, so far he has seen Rubanda solidarity school as a better place to live in. Teacher Medad said that everything in school is favorable, that the pupils are very much interested in studying, that even if he is still new in the place, he will try by his level best to cooperate with everyone in the school. 
All pupils in nursery section are very happy to come back to school to be with their teachers. That they have been missing their fellow pupils and teachers, that they have been missing good food at school too.

We all pray that the way our school has started a new term in peace, is the same way the term is going to end successfully leading to be far ahead of others in as far as performance is concerned.

The School Alumni start with horrific vigor

Another new fascinating activity has been launched at our Rubanda Solidarity School. Its the Alumni program. Its aimed at bringing all our school leavers back to their former school, renew their belonging, build a spirit of support and community development. Inspired Fr. Dominic shared his vision and goal for this new Alumni program with Sr. Stellamaris Kyasiimire and Mr. Rogers Orishaba who articulately supported it. On January 23-24 2015, the first gathering  of former students since 2012 was conducted with 58 students attending gracing the launching. It was noted at the gathering that all students who completed their studies at our school passed their exams with excellency and have all joined high education (known as secondary education in the national system).
The program of the two days included:
  • Socializing and self-introduction
  • Inputs from different speakers on topics such as the following;
  • Challenges of the Youths today
  • How youth cope up with their today's challenges in Rubanda
  • The comparison between the former and the current school of students present,
  • Identifying the different gifts God has given to each individual student
  • Finding out the reasons why God gave each individual those unique gifts
  • Sharing on What and How each individual student wants his/her future to be
There was time for soccer and handball between boys and girls to bring back their old memories and strengthen their ties as they forge a head to meet at the next meeting.
At the conclusion of the two days program, excited students gave a testimony of having found new opportunity of remaining in touch with their former friends and school. They committed themselves to cut on their meager spending and save for their next meeting that was scheduled for late January 2016. There was a common ambition to look at the school as something that has contributed much of who they are now and will be in the future. All promised to support the school as much as they now and in the future. A team of leaders was formed to coordinate their next Alumni meetings and activities in the future. The gathering was concluded with lots thanks and praise.

The girls' coach is pondering on what would  happen of they win.
Life is a win or a lose. You have a big part to play.

Planning a soccer strategy is like planning your future.
Sometimes you have to turn your back away from your peer groups.

Business in the field. In life, one may feel lonely or others at a distance,
invisible. Don't give up on something good. Even if it means dying harder.

Those girls seem to be overrunning the boys, while this young boy lives by each moment.
Do not be overwhelmed by your past and get lost in the future. Live fully now in your present.

At times you may seem snatched of your precious ball of life.
Find time some space and visualize better.
 It may still be around  you or lost in the clouds.  That's not the end.
You can get your ball back intact.

Venensia is the champion of the day being coached by sports Tr. Joy.
At a certain time in life we were all under guidance, but life is in your hands.
 You have to steer the wheel. For each one has his own.

They can't wait to lay their hands on the ball.
Thirst for a good future and work hard for it. It will certainly come but not without patience.

Timely watch of the ball in the air.
Yes, that life that seemed so lost may be closer back. Are you aware of it?

Setting the ball is not as simple as kicking it.
Life takes lots of time and energy to construct but could take the shortest to destroy.
 Set yourself firm.

Teacher Joy illustrates how winning can come about.
Do the best you can and leave the rest to God with his timely wisdom.

Walking under a rolling ball requires an art in sports.
This lady is seemingly walking under life's stress but a miracle drops the very ball
 she was looking for. Never give up on a good cause. Keep on walking, you are never a lone.
The on High is watching over you.

Incredible handballers with a ball just next to the ear.
In life each one has his own place closer or away from the ball.
Being aware of how close or far away is what matters.
It keeps you searching or hanging on to it.
Slapping the ball for a win. Life can seem to be like a gambling game.
But with the help of the one who provides strength miracles happen.

The best way to receive gifts is the determination to give what you have and cherish.

Cheering the champion of the day energizes for heroism.
Giving a credit where it deserves is the weapon away from pride, greed, jealousy and envy.

Girls accurately do the needful to win.
We are all aiming at the same ultimate goal in front of us.
But remember each one has to put in his own effort.  

Rogers trains his son how to be a future Goalkeeper.
The responsibility to the young belongs to every person.

Training in action.
You were once that much and someone helped you to where you are today.
Don't sit back. Do such to someone else who needs your support.
You will once again need it some day.

Girls of young generation in Rubanda learn how to play soccer for the first time.
Life means learning new things. To be beneficial, think of what you can do for others.

Jackfruits that treat life in Uganda. Life is a gift and nature is its treatment.
 Take care for environment because its for your own good.

As the sun rays penetrate through the jack tree canopy so is to our skin into the heart.
Keep your heart responsive to its warmth.

Free from any fear, life can be so enjoyable.
 Remember each person is ought to be his neighbor's keeper no matter your direction. 

Alumni get into groups for discussion on today's youth challenges.
 Sharing life with others can be consoling.
For each individual has his own life experience to share that may be similar
 or unique for a break through. Don't invest any energy in loneliness. It just starves you to death.

Listen and learn

Pondering hard for a better change is the way to go each time people meet to share.

Stay attentive in life even if what you have been holding on seems to be vanishing.

This is the beauty of Rubanda.
 Life is beautiful. Take care of it.
Enjoy it as much as God has given it to you. Always don't forget that its in His hands.

Venensia handles the ball as she trains others.
Once you attain something in life, guard yourself against selfishness. Someone may
 be thirsting for it. Share it out so that it may multiply in plenty and never have to be  snatched away
 from you by robbers who want it alive or dead.  

Accidents are part of the game but first aid is a responsibility of every neighbor.

The Game continues.....
