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.
