Kibuli Old Students Association (KOSA) has today announced December 16 as the date it will hold its annual re-union celebration this year.
According to Asha Birungi, the KOSA Vice President, the ceremony which will be held at the school’s campus in Kampala, is aimed at connecting, inspiring and galvanizing support towards the institution.
“The objective of this ceremony is not only to leverage our potential but also empower the young generation especially the current students to aim higher in life,” she said.
This point was reiterated by the Butambala county legislator Muhammad Muwanga Kivumbi. Kivumbi who is an old boy of the school (1987-1993) pointed out that re-unions provide a unique networking opportunity which alumni must capitalize on.
“This is a call to all sundry. Let us all use this event to optimize our social capital for the benefit of Kibuli and our motherland.”
Retired head teacher Hajji Abbas Mukasa Kawaase advised the current administration to focus on discipline if they are to restore the school to its glorious days.
According to Kawaase who also served as FUFA Super League Chairman three years ago, discipline is a precursor to academic and sports excellence. As such, it must not be ignored in pursuit of other ends.
“We need to get back to our winning ways in football. However similar to academics it cannot happen without discipline,” he said.
Kawaase was the school’s longest serving head teacher for twenty four years, having started in 1978 till 2002.
This year’s event dubbed the “the KOSA Homecoming 2018” shall also act as one of the preparatory events for the school’s 75th anniversary celebrations since it was founded in 1945.
Among events lined up for re-union are; an awarding ceremony of the most accomplished alumni, a medical camp, trade fair and blood donation among other activities.
