ST. HENRY'S COLLEGE,KITOVU - FOR GREATER HORIZONS

ST. HENRY'S DAY CELEBRATIONS, 2018

 

SHACK WINS THE 2018 NATIONAL SCOUTS COMPETITION AGAIN

The college scouts were flagged off by the deputy Head teacher, Mr. Busuulwa Felix on the 24th day of August, 2018 at Kaazi camping grounds. This was preceded by the victory achieved in the regional scouts competitions at Nabugabo where the college scouts were second to none in all the different categories in which they competed.

This was the seventh time the college was participating in the annual Scouts competitions and this time, the scouts were in the benevolent patronage of Mr. Okurotho Jude and the sovereign leadership of Owomugisha Ambrose, their president in the shepherdship of their troop leader, Tamale Emmanuel.

The camp was opened by the minister of works who also doubles as the chief commissioner of scouts, Gen. Emmanuel Katumba Wamala who encouraged the scouts to fully engage in all camp activities.

Many schools from all the corners of the country participated in these competitions for example, Ntare school, Dr. Obote College among others. 

The competitors were engaged in a number of activities according to their sections. The juniors (The group comprising of 15 years and below) engaged in mindset challenging activities and basic survival skills such as constructing essential structures in a home for example racks, cooking places and household furniture using locally available materials like logs, ropes, sisal, grass, and papyrus.

The ventures on the other hand were tested in first aid skills, advanced survival skills, mindset utility development and proactive thinking necessary in problem solving. The scouts in this group lie between 15 and 18 years and this is the core of skills development in scouting. They were subjected to hard living conditions in the jungle, assessed for over 12 times a day and at the end of the competitions, they must have been converted from boys to men.

The Rover scouts, the group comprising scouts between 18 and 25 years of age, were mainly assessed in community development skills, leadership roles and above all their scope of knowledge or scouting right from the basic to the exceptional survival skills in the boundaries of unity. They were assessed in rescue skills, creativity and thrift guided but effective utilization of the local resources so as to benefit the entire community.

The college trio worked tirelessly all through the competitions and eventually emerged the 2nd Runner-Up in the competitions there by making the Masaka region emerge in the best 3 scouting regions in the Country. We therefore delivered with us the trophy to the college soil.

SHACK BRASS BAND

As you all very well know that History repeats itself, it’s on the 20th, October, 2017, when the new brass band system was launched by the College Head teacher, Bro. Augustine Mugabo.

Before going any further, let’s remind ourselves of the History of this particular issue. Soon after the war that ousted Idi Amin in 1979, Masaka town looked like a ghost town with nearly half of the buildings in its main commercial Centre destroyed by the Tanzanian army and all shop looted St. Henry’s college just about 4Kilometers from Masaka town was no exception.

One of the lasting consequences of the liberation was against Idi Amin was the permanent disappearance of the college brass band where instruments were destroyed and others looted. And on a very sad note the college Brass band went in a coma from that time!

We thank the founders beginning with Fr. Laberge who did their part and are part of the story of St. Henry’s college Kitovu wherever they are, their souls must be tormented by absence of one of the famous activities by which the college was identified.

We in a special way thank the Old Boys championed by the current Deputy Head teacher, Mr. Busulwa Felix himself as an old Boy and other well-wishers who are still generously contributing towards this cause. It’s for great factor that, there is going to top into great talent that consistently yearning for it.

We are grateful to God for the wonderful gifts that he has bestowed onto our students who happily welcomed the brass band and by the way getting into the cause and contributing generously.

Our great parents, thank you so much for your generosity and support and please, continue with that spirit.

Our brass band has started contributing socially, spiritually greatly in our school and outside whereby at least two functions have been animated by the SHACK brass band. Namely, the brass band together with the college choir animated the launch of the Gaylord Hospital in Maganjo, secondary, the last send of Rev. Bro. Kyemera Anthony, the Brass band took part and everyone was astonished by the way boys were matching with their machines/instruments. See pictures above and below.

I would therefore thank the students in a special way who have heartily responded to the training sessions. Keep it up, for greater Horizons.

The college trainer, Mr. Kitandwe Gerald Brian thank you for the Job well done so far.

The following are the names of the brass band students and the instrument each one plays.
