The Old Budonians Club is to launch a testimonial book encompassing enthralling and motivating stories told by the ladies that went to Budo Junior School and King’s College Budo.
Titled “She Budonian”, the book will be launched on Saturday April 28, 2018 during the Budo Fest at Lugogo Cricket Oval.
According to Christina Kasule Mulimba, the vice president Old Budonians club, the exclusive event will kick-start with an annual general meeting at 10am and then proceed with the fun-packet Budo Fest at 2pm.
“The girls at Budo succeeded in attaining academic excellence in the same way as their counterparts in mono-sex schools, but have also made an impact on society due to the special challenges which prepared them for a competing world by schooling alongside boys,” he said.
The Budo Fest is an event prepared annually to reunite Old Budonians in an attempt to celebrate, recognize and reminisce about the reverent Budo culture.
This year, the celebrations will be unique because of the launch of the She-Budonian book.
“This book will help readers appreciate and understand Budo schools through the eyes of the ladies that attended the schools”.
The Kampala Capital City Authority Executive Director Jennifer Musisi highlighted on her experiences studying at King’s College Budo. Many more intriguing stories like this are documented in the book.
“Budo laid a firm foundation for what I am today as a wife, mother, investor and public servant. At Budo we had the opportunity and atmosphere to excel in many areas. We learnt to be courteous, polite, and sociable and cultured,” Musisi said in the to-be launched book extract.
