Zombo. The Old Girls of the once powerful school in Uganda, St Peter’s Warr over the weekend fundraised in order to buy a school bus and also revive the school.
Warr in the early 1990’s was a powerful school in academics and co-curricular activities. It was a pride for a girl who completes primary seven and gets admitted for secondary education in Warr Girls. The school surroundings provided cool ambience for studies-though cold day and night most times due to the trees around the school.
The Head teacher of the school, Fr. Alfred Agwokotho, said recently that he started from scratch and student enrollment has since increased from 86 to 200 from 2016.
“We are looking towards increased mobilization for school enrollment and better academic performance and we have all it takes to realize our dreams,” Fr Agwokotho said.
He also observed that Warr Girls gives the best opportunity for the girl child education given its affordable fees structure, human resource and available facilities.
Performance in academics was at its best as it produced several political and civil leaders that are offering services for the people across the country and other parts of the world.
And now as the Golden Jubilee of the school nears, the Old Girls and some Old Boys of St Aloysius College Nyapea-who continued with the long time bond, have been engaged in the organization of the fundraising drive.
The Old Girls and Boys of the two schools and other well-wishers held a Car Washing in Lugogo in order to raise funds. Among them is the State Minister for Northern Uganda and Zombo Woman MP, Grace Kwiyocwiny, former Woman MP for Nebbi, Betty Udongo.
The area Member of Parliament Ora County, Lawrence Biyika Songa also the chairperson Central Organising Committee recently called upon civil society organizations promoting the girl child education, the business community and all people of good will to support the organizers in the struggle to mobilize resources to uplift Warr Girls to its former glory.
“We are calling upon the Old girls and old boys who attended the school when it was still at junior level and all the civil society organizations including people of good will to support the school in celebrating that auspicious day,” Songa said.
Many of them have become successful people serving people in different departments in the country. The celebration of the golden jubilee has been tentatively scheduled to take place on 29th June 2018.
