BY CHRISTOPHER AHIMBISIBWE

Old students of Kinoni integrated primary school found in Rwampara have decided to mobilize and contribute money which will help in adding another level of the storied building which was started by parents in 2006.

During their re-union gathering which took place at the school in Kinoni Rwampara, Dr. Barigye Enock one of the longest serving head teacher revealed that the school is a historical one in Rwampara district even in greater Ankole since it started in 1922 making 100 years in existence .

Amos Akakunda member of parliament for Rwampara together with Muhumuza John director Kinoni high school, retired Bishop of Ankole diocese Bishop Tibesigwa, retired Head teacher Nathan Kateba, Christopher Kateera  and many others who graced the function, showed the need of more than sh200M which is needed to construct another level of the building.

Komujuni Gertrude the headmistress of the school who is again the first female lady to lead the school revealed that the enrolment of the school is rapidly increasing whereby now the school has more than 1061 pupils.

To her this enrolment would be good but due to lack of enough structures at school it is now becoming a challenge to the management.

Ambassador Francis Butagira one of the old students of this school and who was the chief quest on the function, welcomed the idea of old students to gear up the celebrations of 100 years and also taking a step of re-building their school.  He requested leaders of Rwampara to copy his leadership skills he used during their regime as Member of Parliament up to now.

During the re-union more than SH10M was collected as they prepare to resume construction.

Old students requested the retired Bishop Tibesigwa who is again the senior presidential advisor and also ambassador Butagiira to take their request to the president Museven to contribute to them towards the finishing of the three storied building since the school and Kinoni as a place has a big history on him.
