MESSAGE FROM THE HEAD OF THE COLLEGE
I greet you in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ and invite you to our mighty College Website. I also welcome you to this New Year 2018 and hope the year 2017 was a successful one.
The College is guided by its Vision and Mission:
SCHOOL VISION: CONTINUOUS IMPROVEMENT AND ENDLESS SEARCH FOR KNOWLEDGE
SCHOOL MISSION: TO PRODUCE SELF RELIANT AND ACCEPTABLE CITIZENS WHO ARE WELL FORMED IN CHARACTER AND KNOWLEDGE ACQUISITION
I extend my appreciation to the Board of Governors under the stewardship of Fr. Dr. John Baptist Kaganda, The P.T.A. Executive headed by Mr. Kayondo Everest, Old students Association headed by Mr. Sseremba Owen, the Teaching and Support staff, the students and our dear parents. They have all been very supportive to the College.
I also thank all the former Headteachers of this College for their positive contribution towards the success of this school. The Foundation and culture they put in place during their time still stands.
The College once again shinned in U.C.E. and U.A.C.E Examinations, 2017 and 198 of our students who UCE Examinations, 191 came in Division 1, 07 students came in Division II.
In U.A.C.E, our very own Ssempala Timothy obtained 20 points in his sitting with Physics, Mathematics and Technical Drawing / Sub ICT (4AAA1). I thank everybody who contributed to make our students excel not forgetting our students themselves.
These students who excel in U.C.E Examinations and enroll for their A' level studies at the college are sponsored by the Board of Governors and Old Students. This scholarship is guaranteed for all their two years at High school as long as the student remains in good academic standing.
The College has continued its march in the path of academic excellence. It has continued to achieve excellent results in the final examinations. The students who excel in their U.A.C.E. examinations return to the College during their vacation to discuss for the A-Level students and provide peer and inspirational guidance to the candidates. They become part of staff until they commence their University studies.
Once again, I congratulate the candidates of 2017 upon their excellent performance. I heartily appreciate the members of staff and all the stakeholders of the College for all the efforts and their excellent service rendered to the school to ensure excellent performance specially in U.C.E.
In a special way, i congratulate Literature Department for emerging the best in the country, Biology the 4th, Mathematics the 6th, Physics the 9th, among other subjects. We thank the Board of Governors , staff and parents for all the support.
Apart from academic success, the College continues to emphasise co-curricular activities. I believe that it is essential to equip students not only with academic knowledge but also a useful set of competencies and skills needed to succeed in today’s competitive world. I therefore espouse modern approaches of education that emphasize all–round development of the students. The Administration provides ample time, facilities and a broad array of co-curricular activities for the students to discover and develop their athletics, scouting literary societies like Y.C.S., Xaverian Movement, Interact, Drama, Debating among others. These activities underpin the goal of teaching students to be responsible and fulfilled human beings with opportunities that develop character, competition spirit, critical thinking and balancing priorities. We also teach students the importance of vigilance, hard work, attention to detail, practice, patience and persistence in the face of setbacks, foster social skills, self-esteem, develop leadership skills and provide opportunities to build lifetime relationships as well as helping channel the youthful energies in fruitful activities.
All these activities have been a success in the College and our students have travelled in some countries for example debate club in Germany, Junior Achievers in Gabon, and Scouts in Arusha Tanzania and Kenya, Debaters in Kigali-Rwanda, among others.
In this regard, our college is also organising a sports gala on 24th, March, 2018 which will involve all students, Teaching and Non-teaching staff, support staff and old boys who will participate in all the games. Preparations are on-going.
The School Administration, the Board of Governors and P.T.A. work together to ensure that the school population is kept at acceptable levels.
The foundation upon which the College was founded, the Catholic Foundation is still strong. I pledge to keep and preserve the College values, academic excellence, and the name St. Henry’s College Kitovu. I implore all of you who visit our Website to accord the College all the possible support.
On a point of information, i wish to invite you to come and celebrate with us our 96th, year of existence on 7th, July, 2018 which will be St. Henry's Day.
FOR GOD AND MY COUNTRY
FOR GREATER HORIZONS
